Work with others the easy way with Office Live Workspace

Microsoft Office Live Workspace beta is your online place to store and share documents. When you have multiple people involved in a project or planning an event, Office Live Workspace makes it easy. You can share documents, coordinate schedules, and manage to-do lists in your own password-protected online workspace. It’s a great way to keep everyone actively involved – whether they’re next door or on the next continent.

Goodbye attachments. Hello sharing.
Avoid worrisome attachments and back-and-forth e-mails by posting documents you want to share in your workspace. Anyone you’ve invited to join has easy access anytime.

No more merging.
In a workspace, everyone works off a single online copy of a document. That saves time and eliminates the confusion that often occurs when you merge multiple copies of the same document.

Password-protected sharing.
Not only is your workspace password-protected, but you control who can actively edit in your workspace and who has view-only privileges.
