Working ofline with document library content
You can create a synchronized copy of a SharePoint document library as a folder in Outlook
2013. You can then preview in Outlook any document, workbook, or presentation that is
stored in the document library, or you can work with a local copy of the document,
workbook, or presentation on your computer. Changes that you make to a document from an
Outlook folder synchronize with the file on the SharePoint site (and vice versa).
To connect a document library or folder therein to Outlook, follow these steps:
On your organization’s SharePoint site, display the document library or subfolder you
want to work with.
The next step varies based on the version of SharePoint your organization is running.

content area, click Connect to Outlook .
In the Internet Explorer dialog box and/or Internet Explorer Security dialog box that
