Excel, Word and Powerpoint Files

Ansarada has the ability to add an extra layer of security on Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint files using a technology we call Secure Office.

💡Tip: We recommend to convert finalized documents that no longer require collaboration to PDF. Any Microsoft Office files where the intention is for the Guest to modify, markup, fill out or comment it is recommended to remove security as the file will expire when the Room or the Guest is disabled.
