Technical FAQs

Question

Can I prevent users from downloading the document they are editing?

Answer

Yes. You can easily remove the download option from the editor menu. Additionally, to completely prevent someone from being able to manually download the document via a network request, you should configure your proxy or web tier to prevent access to the REST API route that supports the download option (GET /api/v1/sessions/:sessionId/document). Refer to the PrizmDoc Editor API documentation for more information.

Question

Can I assign a name to each end-user using the Editor for the purpose of track changes?

Answer

Yes. When creating an instance of the Editor in your web application, you can configure what the end user’s name and initials should be for track changes. Additionally, you have the option to allow the end user to edit their name and initials. PrizmDoc Editor itself has no user account system; that’s the responsibility of your application. However, when you create an editing session, you can easily configure PrizmDoc Editor to use the username and initials which your application requires. Refer to the PrizmDoc Editor API documentation for more information.
