How do I share a document I create?

Documents can be used to create notes, outlines, academic papers, etc. Whether your document is published in the catalog or left unpublished, it can still be shared or assigned directly to individuals of your choice.  Sharing a document with a user will make it appear under their account.

To share your unpublished or published document: 

    1. From "My Library" select “Documents” on the left side panel.

    2. Click the three-dots menu icon below your Document and select “Share.”

You can also share from inside the Document by clicking “OPTIONS” and selecting “Share.” There are three ways to share a Document:

    1. Share via Email Link:
      • To email a link to the Document or copy it and share it with others, select “EMAIL LINK.”
      • When “EMAIL LINK” is selected, it will pull up your emailing application (Outlook or other) and generate an email with a link to your Document. You can copy the generated link from the email and share it however you prefer, or you can email the link from your email application. When a recipient clicks on the link from any platform and registers on the LiveCarta portal, your Document will be automatically assigned to them.
        • Note: This option is only available when you share from inside the document.

    1. Add an individual student (this option will work best for students that already have an account with LiveCarta):
      • Select “Add People”.
      • Enter the student’s email.
        • The system will auto-populate the names if they already have a LiveCarta account. If the email entered is not associated with an existing account, it will not auto-populate, and you will need to enter a first and last name.
      • Click “SAVE” or “SAVE AND ADD” to add additional students by email.

   3. Upload a complete roster of students:

      • Select “Upload Roster”. You can then select “Choose File” to upload a completed .csv file.  Select the saved document and click “Upload”.
        • Note: You can also select “Download Template” and input your roster information into the template. Save the template with roster information and then select “Choose File”.  Find the saved template file and select “Upload”.


Once you have shared the Document with your students, they will be notified via email that they now have access to it on LiveCarta.
