Due Diligence


The module "Due-Diligence" enables to constrain the scope of action for a user defined group in the share web interface. It allows the group to access the flash preview of a document only. The possibility to download documents is not given in this particular case. The module was built for due diligence- and review-processes.

The module consists of several web scripts which query the group membership of the user and will only allow access to document actions and document links to authorized users.

A 'view-only' user can only see the flash preview.

  • The module does not prevent users from taking screenshots or grabbing the flash-file via browser plugins!
