ℹ️ This feature is only accessible to Admins.

You are now able to redact Personally Identifying Information (PII) patterns, customisable search terms and areas in the Room. To learn how, please follow these guides: Bulk redact documents and Redact single document.

⚠️ Good to know: If you save your redacted document using the Save as option, you can only edit the redactions while the original document is still in your room. Once the original document is no longer available (deleted or updated to a newer version), the redaction marks on your redacted document become permanent and can no longer be edited.

To edit redactions again, revert the document to a previous version using the History dialog. If the original document is deleted, contact our global support teams via Live Chat or email us at [email protected] to restore the document for you 😊.
