I created mydomain.com and registered it with google apps and use it to follow along during the live streaming classes. I am logged in as administer for everything I do. Whenever I create any Google Doc (today I created a coffee presentation), I go to 'Share' --> 'Sharing Settings' --> & click the 'Change' link. Under the visibility options, I can only choose from the following three options:
*MyDomain: People at MyDomain can find and access.
*People at MyDomain who have the link can access.
*Private: Only people explicitly granted permission can access. Sign-in required.
There is no option to share with outside users (no Public option). Ideally, I would like to just email an outside person (ie at an aol address) so they get the email and log in to view my shared document (I assigned them a log in, but they don't check their assigned internal 'MyDomain' google apps email).
Here is what I tried so far as troubleshooting:
1) I went to http://www.google.com/a/cpanel/mydomain.com/ --> 'Service Settings' tab --> 'Sharing Settings' --> I checked the box 'Users can share documents outside MyDomain' & clicked the 'Save Settings' button.
Upon going back to the Share Settings in my document, it did not change the menu options at all.
2) I thought maybe it needs to be 'published' to get the options for outside sharing to be turned on so I opened my presentation document, went to 'Share' & 'Publish/Embed' and clicked the button to publish. It is now published and says "This document is published only within MyDomain." I tried re-opening the published document and the Share Setting menu options 'Change' button and still do not have any added options - No Public Option!
So, I'm not sure what I'm missing here but I do hope someone can follow this and figure out my problem. I really would like the public option... I feel like it should be an easy fix but I'm just not seeing it!
Thanks in advance!
