Introducing Document Watermarks

Online file sharing makes it easy to send important documents with the click of a button. Unfortunately, online document sharing can come with some security concerns. Make sure your files are properly protected by including watermarks. The new Document Watermark tool available from Onehub makes it quick and easy to add watermarks to protect your online file sharing. 

Document Watermarks automatically insert a Watermark with the user’s email, date and the word Confidential when a user views the document online or downloads. If a user has download permission, the user will download a protected PDF that includes the Watermark. Administrators and Moderators will still have access to the original documents. 

Viewing Documents Online 

When viewing documents in a Workspace with Watermarks enabled, the file preview automatically displays a watermark on every page, protecting your online file sharing.

Downloading Documents With Online File Sharing 

When downloading documents, the user gets a protected PDF with the watermark instead of the original file. Administrators and Moderators in the Workspace can download the original file without a watermark.
