BT Cloud shared files

I have uploaded an excel file to bt cloud and set it up as a shared file.

I have generated a link so someone else can downlaod the file and edit it but how do they save it back to the cloud so i can have access to the edited document.

They are not bt customers so do not have a bt account and can't create one.

I have spent the last 5 hours trying to find an answer.

Re: BT Cloud shared files

I am pretty certain whoever you gave access to your spreadsheet cannot "re-upload" the file. Why? Well, the cloud account is yours and yours only and is secure. 

What you gave the other party was a link to the file. This link enables the file to be viewed or downloaded and that is as far as it goes.

Depending upon the whether the content, the other party can email the edited/updated/amended spreadsheet back to you. There are, of course, other methods of sharing and editing files with others such as gxxxxe drive but I am no expert.

Google drive does allow sharing, and editing by named people who also have a Gmail account.

Gmail accounts are free, and can be opened by anyone over 13.

15Gb is offered free.
