Permissions Matrix for Document Folders

  • Updated

The Permissions Matrix is a feature that allows users to view all their published folders and the permissions associated for each client. The end result is a 360-degree view of how folders are externally distributed.

Partners form the foundation for how you view information within the Permission Matrix. To the right of the partner, you will see all the folders in your system that have been published and the associated permissions for each partner.

Note: Only Document Administrators can access the Permissions screen.

This article covers the following topics:

Using the Permissions Matrix, Document Admins can modify permissions for published Folders if required. The following permissions are available for each folder:

  • Download Files Download_Icon.png : This permission enables the recipient to download all Files in the Folder.
  • Publish as Read-Only read-only_2x.png : This permission allows the recipient to view all the files in a Read-Only format.
  • Watermarks Watermark_Icon.png : This permission applies a standard watermark to all the files in the folder.
  • Publish as Private Security_Icon.png : This permission allows the files in the folder to be accessed only by the intended recipient and not by the entire division/organization.
