Document Viewer Printing

ShareFile’s Virtual Data Room Plans include a view only option. When viewing files in the document viewer we do have the option to allow users to print the file. If you enable this option users would be able to see the Print icon to print out the file without being able to download and save it to their computer. This feature is disabled by default.

You can enable the printing of View-Only documents by =clicking the Admin link from the navigation bar of your account and then clicking the Advanced Preferences link in the sidebar. The option to Enable Document Viewer Printing will be located under the Virtual Data Room section of the page. You can select the Yes option under this setting to allow users to print documents they have View-Only rights on.

There is also a folder preference so this feature can be enabled on a folder by folder basis. To enable this feature on a specific folder you will click into the folder and on the sidebar there will be a link for Edit Folder Options.

Note: If you have watermarking enabled for your account, these documents will also be watermarked for users that do not have download rights.
