Add a watermark to PDF files
or make them “read-only” during upload
ou can find this feature exclusively in a data room. A data room is available only in the Growth and Enterprise packages. The watermark serves as a distribution protection for a document. If a member wants to download the PDF document, the name of the user and the date when the document was downloaded appear as a watermark across the document. To prevent downloading, you can give a PDF document the "View-only" attribute. A user of your data room can open and read the PDF document in the data room - but not download it. You can add one of these attributes to a PDF document at the time of upload. To add these attributes to a document, you need at least the Write permission. A PDF file larger than 100 MB cannot have a watermark or view-only attribute added to it.
If you upload a PDF file in advanced mode,
you have the option to give the file one of the following attributes:
To assign one of these attributes, proceed
- Open the Box
- Click on the "+" symbol in the upper
- Select the function "Upload files
- Click on "Select files"
- idgard® connects to your computer
- Select your .pdf file
- Activate "Watermark" or "Read
- Upload your .pdf file
Once the upload
process is complete, idgard® will switch to the file view.
