Sharing and collaborating on files

With Xodo, you can annotate and comment on PDFs in real time with anyone you want, as long as they have an email address and access to a web browser. There's no need for your group members to create an account or download Xodo.

1. While viewing the document you want to share, tap the Xodo Connect icon on the Action Bar. If you don't see the Action Bar, tap the center of your screen to bring it up.

2. If you're sharing a document for the first time, you can either sign in with your Google account by tapping the Continue with Google button, or create a Xodo account by entering your email and password and tapping the Create Account button. If you already have a Xodo account, tap I already have an account at the bottom of the screen and enter your email and password.



If you're creating a new Xodo account, Xodo will send you a verification email. Once you've verified your email address, you can proceed to the next step.



3. In the next dialog, enter your group members' emails. You can tap Browse to select contacts from your device.


4. Once you've added a group member, you can tap theSettings icon beside their email address to change their permissions. By default, group members are given rights toAnnotate, but you can choose to give them only  Read Only permissions. You can alsoDelete a group member from the document.

5. You can also Add a Personal Message to your collaborators, and choose your notification settings for new activity on the document.

Once you're satisfied with your choices, tap OK. Xodo will send email invitations to your group members on your behalf with a link to the document.
