Collaborating With Others Using Pages

You can work with other people on a Pages document in real-time or at separate times. All you need to do is to share the document with them using the Collaborate feature inside Pages. This relies on iCloud, though the other person can use the Web-based version of Pages if they don't have Pages or even a Mac.

    Two questions Gary.
    1: If you share “link” with another person for editoring. Do they have to have an Apple ID or email ?
    2: Could the link ( for editoring) be shared with someone not using apple or Pages ? Would they get the web version of Pages to work on ?
    Thanks Gary

    Terry: No. You don’t need an Apple ID or even to log in to anything. Try it. Create a document, save it, hit the Collaborate button. Set it to allow anyone to edit. Then copy the link. Then open a private browsing window where you aren’t even logged in. Paste in the link. Yes, you would be using the web version of Pages.

    Fantastic. Thanks for that.
    I don’t understand why a lot more people don’t use Pages. Its certainly my first “go to” word processor.

    When you add a person to collaborate with a Pages doc, where do they go to open the doc? Each time they want to work on the doc do they have to open the doc from the original email that was sent to them or is a file stored on the HD?

    Gene: You can keep using the same link from the same place you got it in the first place. Or, bookmark it or save the link elsewhere. It should also show up under File, Open Recent.
