Cometdocs - Conversion, Storage, and Sharing
Recently, I learned about a website called Cometdocs. It is an online document management system that allows you store, convert, and share documents. You get 1 GB of free storage for documents and files. You can create an account or you can just use the site to share or convert files. With an account, you can create folders, edit the metadata, convert to PDF or from PDF as well as other formats, and share with others.
My first attempt was with a PDF that I uploaded to the site. I wondered if I could convert from PDF to Word and if it would really be easy and useable. I clicked the convert button and the file easily converted to word. I was amazed at how easily the conversion occurred. I was able to edit the text and move pictures around. It supports the change to Excel, Word, Powerpoint, as well as many other formats.
Sharing of a file can easily be completed by sharing the link to email addresses. The file can also be hosted so that the link can be shared through social media using Facebook, Twitter, or Google links.
I was very pleased with the ease of use and the flexibility of the site. Upload some files, share some files, convert some files and see how it works for you. I think it's great.
