The share screen contains a search bar for inviting other users to access the PDF file, and a list of people who have access to the file. The share screen also contains a sharing link for the file, if link sharing has been enabled. In Sharing settings you can customize who can open the file and assign the following document permissions: commenting, editing or full-access with the ability to share. Just copy the public link and send it by email, chat with colleagues or any social network.
