Direct link to file ankur677 4/12/10 4:55 PM
I looked into the Google doc and shared an uploaded file with a group of people. I have provided a link to the file on a central intranet page for people to download. The link takes them to the document page, where the download button is provided.

All my interest here is to minimize the needed clicks to get to the file.
Let me know if someone has an answer. Either way one extra click is no issue.
