Viewing Documents Contents

You can view the documents contents in Docsvault in the following ways:


Document Previews

Document Preview supports all popular document types (including Word, Excel, PDF, Emails, Graphic & Engineering Drawing) without having any native software installed on the client machine. This feature is available in Docsvault Enterprise & Ultimate edition only. For more information, see Document Previews.


Document PDF and Image Viewer

A safe way to view a document is by opening it in read-only mode. This prevents unintentional modification of data. You can use this option to view and print PDF documents and image files imported into Docsvault. In the list view panel, you can choose the file information you want to view.
