Microsoft SharedView is a fast, easy way to share documents and screen views with small groups of friends or coworkers; anytime, anywhere. Use SharedView to put your heads together and collaborate – create, convey, and communicate…across physical boundaries, through firewalls, and down to the smallest details.
Some important tips on using SharedView:
- To start a session using this program, you must sign in using a Windows Live ID (Passport ID). However, you can use any e-mail ID or even a friendly name to join a session. A friendly name is a name of your choice. This is the name that others in the session will use to identify you.
- If you want to start a session and do not have a Windows Live ID, you can continue installing this program. However, before signing in, you must get a new Windows Live™ ID.
- If you are already using this program, you will see an upgrade notification that redirects you to the installation site.
You must have a working Internet connection to use this program. Please note this is a BETA service and there are limited details as to the future of this service.
