When working on a personal job or project that involves electronic information, it is always helpful to have everything you need in one place, such as a single folder on your hard drive or in the cloud. But this can be difficult if the documents are in different formats. You may have Word files and Excel spreadsheets in one file, HTML files that are bookmarked online, and messages stored on your mail server.
Most of the time, it is possible to convert the files into a format that is easier to handle. This is the case for emails that can be converted to a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. A PDF file can be stored with Word, Excel and other types of documents in a normal document folder and can be shared and viewed by others, regardless of the type of equipment or software they have. PDF files can also be protected by permissions and passwords.
