macOS Sierra: Sharing Apple Notes

1 minute read
| Quick Tip

One of the features macOS Sierra brings to the table is collaboration, specifically in Apple Notes. Sharing notes is a great way to collaborate with your friends, family or coworkers.

Shared Notes

Sharing notes is simple. Open Apple Notes—you’ll find the app in your Applications folder, in Launchpad, or by searching Spotlight. You’ll see a new sharing button next to the share button on top. Click on it, and you can type in names or email addresses from your Contacts.

Once you choose people to share with, you can send the invitation in several ways:

  • Mail
  • Messages
  • Copy/paste
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • AirDrop

Once the person accepts the invitation, they are free to edit the note as long as they are running iOS 10 and/or macOS Sierra. You can change the level of access that each person has too.

Keep in mind that you can only share notes stored in iCloud, not notes stored on your device. You also can’t share password-protected notes. It’s easy to see which notes you’re sharing because the person icon will be presented in the list.
