You can email a document by clicking the Actions icon, and selecting the Email link from the group of Action links for the document on the results list.

Bookmarks are a collection of links to favorite documents - yours and your colleagues'. You can use bookmarks to:
Bookmarks can be edited by clicking the Edit icon . Specific bookmarks can be deleted by clicking the Delete icon , or delete them all by clicking the Delete All button.
All Bookmarks are made Public by default. To make a bookmark Private you must deselect the Public check-box on the bookmark overlay. Your User Profile Page will only reflect the number of Public bookmarks you have created.
Bookmarking on the portal allows you to store bookmarks within your portal instead of inside your browser. This has several advantages:
The Public or Private status of a bookmark will not affect bookmark tags as they appear in the widgets on the My Portal page. Nor will it affect how a record is displayed on the search results page.
You can use tags (see more about tags below) to organize and remember your bookmarks, which is a much more flexible system than folders.
Tags are single-word descriptors that you can assign to your bookmarks. Tagging can be much easier and more flexible than trying to pigeonhole all of your information into someone else's preconceived categories or folders. You can assign as many tags to a bookmark as you like.
For example, you might tag a document based on its topic, industry, year, and any other terms that will help you find it again. You make up tags as you need them, and use tags that make the most sense to you.
Tags are a powerful tool for organizing and finding your own data, and they are even more effective when whole teams or organizations utilize the same tags to identify and share pertinent documents with colleagues.
You can tag and save documents by clicking the Bookmark and Share link from the document's Action links on the results list.
You may notice lists of existing tags under the Tags field, in the Edit/Save Bookmark pop-up window:
To select a tag from this list, click on the link to it and the term will be inserted into the Tags field for this document.
NOTE: to ensure maximum effectiveness, add both the singular and plural forms of words used as tags.
Your bookmark tags can be presented in 2 views:
To toggle between these views, go to My SinglePoint (drop-down) >> My Bookmarks (link) >> My Bookmark Tags (box) >> View, and choose the link to the format you wish to view.
In order to view all documents tagged with a specific term, click on the link to that term.
The various tags you use for bookmarks can be viewed in a list format, or a cloud format. A tag cloud is a visual representation of tagged words and how often they are used. The size of the rendering of a given word is related to the relative number of times that word has been tagged.
For example, if you used the tag "2018" four times and you used the tag "hospitality" once, then the tag 2018 will display in a larger font size than the word hospitality.
Go to My SinglePoint >> My Bookmarks
Each bookmark listed has its tags listed as links. Click the link of the tag you wish to address. This will present to you a listing of each bookmark where that tag is used. Click on the icon for any of the bookmarks, and you can edit or delete the tag.
You may print a copy of a document by using the Print option on your browser. To save the document on your hard drive for viewing later, use the File->Save as option on your browser. Most documents in your portal are Word files or .PDF files; for the few HTML documents, designate a new filename with a *.htm or *.html extension.
You may display and print, store, and archive copies of articles in print and electronic form solely for your own purposes and the purposes of your organization. You may not display or distribute the content or any copies thereof to third parties, except to the extent permitted by applicable copyright law.
Please contact your portal administrator for more information.
Clicking the Connect tab will bring you to two links: My Colleagues and My Groups.

To invite a colleague to join your network, first find their profile by typing their name or email by going to Connect (drop-down) >> My Colleagues (link) >> Search User. Then click on the icon next to their name.
Your colleague will receive an automated message with your invitation, and then can accept, decline or ignore it. If accepted, you can share bookmarks with each other.
You can use My Groups to collaborate around a specific topic or project with a group of other portal users from the My Groups section of the Connect drop-down. Groups allow you to share documents and participate in threaded discussions. Click the link of a Group name, to go to that group's dashboard.

New groups default to open access, so if you want to restrict participation, change the access to "closed" or "secret." If you have a saved search you want to display as headlines to group members, you can designate it here.
Once the group is created, you can invite members by selecting Edit Members from Group Options box on the left side of the page. Use the Search User box to find colleagues' name and email, and invite them to join the group.
An open group is listed in the Groups Directory and any portal user may join.
A closed group is listed in the Groups Directory but membership is at the discretion of the group administrator. Users can request membership or be invited by group administrators.
