With group (publishing), unless you can get together at “the drop of a hat”, your group may find itself in need of a way to share files over the internet. The easiest way to do that is pick a format you all use and send email attachments. However, many people prefer to add another layer of anti-virus protection to this. Rather than basically computer to computer (email), computer to third party area where it can be scanned before downloading into computer. Basic needs can be fulfilled by having an electronic group online, like through Yahoo or Google. However, if more space is needed, here are a few suggestions:

  • www.box.net – free or paid services

  • www.drop.io – this is great because you can set the files to expire when they are loaded. When they expire, they are deleted from the internet.

  • Microsoft SharePoint – Robust paid service
