Advanced File Features allows you to preview various file types, such as documents, and spreadsheets directly – without requiring a download and re-upload.
How Do Advanced File Features Work?
When you opt to preview a file using Advanced File Features, the file is processed by third-party services, which generate a secure and rapid preview. This preview is then displayed directly within our platform, providing you with a seamless and efficient viewing experience.
To provide these features, we engage with the expertise and dedicated resources of two primary third-party services, to ensure that the previews generated are of high quality, secure, and generated with minimal delay:
Google Docs Viewer – Utilised for generating previews of various file types. Explore Google’s privacy practices here.
Microsoft Office Viewer – Predominantly used for previewing Microsoft Office files to ensure accurate and quality previews. Understand more about Microsoft's data management here.
Safeguarding Your Data Privacy
While these third-party services access your files to generate previews, we assure you of:
Restricted Access: The services access your files strictly for preview generation.
Data Security: We ensure the services adhere to stringent data protection and privacy standards.
User Autonomy: Your engagement with Advanced File Features, and thereby these third-party services, is entirely under your control.
To enable the functionality of Advanced File Features, we require your consent to allow these third-party services to access and read your files for preview generation. Your consent is implied by switching on the feature in the General Security settings tab.
