Watermark PDF files

Watermark PDF files

This feature can only be found in a data room.  Data rooms can be added for the Growth and Enterprise packages.  The dynamically generated watermark from idgard® can only be added to a PDF file. The watermark contains the name of the user and a timestamp of the date on which the file was opened and downloaded by a user. This marking offers protection against unauthorized disclosure of documents. If this function is applied to a PDF file, the marking is automatically embedded in each page of the file.  Only the data room creator and the data room administrator can activate and deactivate the watermark function for a PDF file.

Proceed as follows:
  • Click on the check box to select the PDF file

  • Click on the "document" icon in the green bar

  • Select the watermark function

The PDF file is watermarked. If a PDF file is watermarked, you can recognize it by the "With Watermark" label under the file name. To remove the watermark, select the "None" option.

The German timezone is used for all watermarks.
