Instead of having to download your file as a PDF version before you send it to someone, save time and send it as a PDF via a link
If you often need to send your G Suite files in a PDF format you’ll know the process of having to download the file as a PDF, go to your downloads and send it via email, upload it or vice versa. This tip allows you to work on your G Suite files and send your file as a PDF via a link.
This is a time saver as you can continue to work on your file and update it without having to download the PDF version each time you make a change. The PDF link will remain the same so continue to work on your G Suite files and send the link when you’re finished and it will download as a PDF.
