Starting today, Amazon WorkDocs makes it easier to share files with contractors, vendors, and other third parties in a quick, easy, and secure way. WorkDocs users can now collaborate with third parties by selecting “Share by invite” from the file drop-down menu, and entering a valid email address.

The recipient creates a guest user account the first time they log in to view the file, and can view any files shared with them. There is no charge for guest users, and administrators can upgrade a guest user to a standard user at any time. Administrators control who can invite guest users, can disable guest users at any time, and can audit all guest user activity in the Activity Feed. 

This feature is available today in all AWS Regions where WorkDocs is offered. To learn more about WorkDocs, or to start your 30-day trial, please visit Amazon WorkDocs.
