Secure Document Sharing with edocr Stay in control of your shared documents! Never lose control of your sensitive documents and put yourself at risk when sharing secure edocr links. Set who can view, they are verified via email as a 2-factor authentication, restricting access to ensure only the right people can view your documents. All you need is a recipient email address and a few clicks to send your confidential document. All your recipient needs are an email address and access to the internet. Let's walk through a quick example so you can see just how easy this is! (We are assuming by now you have an activated edocr account.) First, we set up a Private Collection. Some people call these Data Rooms or secure cloud folders. Nomenclature aside, the behavior is very similar, and here at edocr we call our file folders Collections as they hold a collection of documents. (More about Collections here) Name your collection and set the access rules. You can also add (or delete) the allowed users at this time, or anytime later. You could set up an individual document share with access rules individually, but for this example, we are using the access rules in the Collections folder. (More about Privacy Settings here) Now that we have a Collection, let's upload a document there. Just click upload, select your document, in this case it is a Top Secret PDF, set a few optional view options, or ignore these settings for the defaults. and place it in the correct Collection folder by name. Now, if you look at any document in this Collection, the Access Control has been set appropriately. Make sure you turn off print, copy, download & embed if you want this not to be allowed. (Note that you can set your defaults for these by using a Template to upload.) APIs for many of these functions are coming soon. The above set up is for a 'one to many' Collection (one or a few providers of documents, many viewers of the them), but if the desire is 'many to one' instead, use a Collaborative Collection (example: lots of students' documents, one or two teachers reading).
