Sharing Documents: Use a cloud share service. There are free services from Google drive and One Drive.
Scheduling: Setup a way to send appointments to others quickly.
Above all else, schedule your Friday afternoon as a block of time to work on modifying these systems to make them more efficient and save you time at work during the week. Commit to you and your business to be better than yesterday.
