Sharing Safely in Glow

 

Glow has a range of tools which can be used independently or in collaboration with others. How ever you are using it, it is always good to have a regular check of your settings to ensure only those you intend and who require access have the permissions to view, edit or share documents, files, groups or sites with you. 

The bitesize videos below show how to review and share safely from a range of Microsoft products within Glow. These include:
  • Launchpads
  • Teams
  • OneDrive
  • Groups 
  • Sharepoint

The full length video can be viewed on our 365 Learning Pathway page or via our YouTube Sharing Safely Playlist.
