idgard® Office Add-In:Introduction

idgard® Office Add-In:Introduction

Given you are a Microsoft Office user, i. e., you work with Word, PowerPoint or Excel. There are many files which you wish to exchange regularly with co-workers or external parties; or modify in common, as a team. Or you want to be able to access the files from any device. Or the files are so confidential, that you prefer not saving them locally.

In all of the above cases, idgard® Office Add-in provides the following benefits:

No media interruption: you can work directly per Word, PowerPoint or Excel

Files are automatically blocked for other Box or Data Room members. That way, redundant work is avoided, if you're working in a team.

1 click ("Save"), and the selected members can instantly access the file.

The files are stored locally only temporarily. The instant you close a file, it is deleted from temporary local memory.[1]

With only a few clicks, you can save open files in idgard, thus making them available to selected members.
