Users can comment on files, send them to others for feedback, and upload new versions without having to resort to emailing multiple versions of their files as attachments. Users can comment on specific content in a file, reply to comments, send private comments, format comments for emphasis, and they can notify specific contributors about relevant feedback by tagging comments with their email address. They can also lock the document to prevent it from receiving further feedback. Amazon WorkDocs notifies contributors about review activities and deadlines via email, and offers rich versioning capabilities.
Amazon WorkDocs provides users with a central location with 1 TB of storage, for both the documents and files they are reviewing as well as those they own and are soliciting feedback on. With all these files in one location, reviewers can access all related feedback in a single view, making reading or contributing as simple as a few clicks. The Activity Feed helps users keep track of what’s changed, stay connected to what’s going on, and quickly find they files and folders they need to access.
Amazon WorkDocs offers flexible security settings and access controls to manage data storage and sharing. You can use policies to control users’ sharing behavior and choose the AWS region where your users’ data is stored. All data is encrypted in transit and at rest, and users don’t have to send documents as email attachments.
Users can access files stored in Amazon WorkDocs and view and leave feedback on files anywhere, anytime, from the device of their choice. Users can leverage the Amazon WorkDocs apps for iPad, Kindle Fire, and Android tablets. The Amazon WorkDocs Sync client lets users have files saved on their computer automatically uploaded to Amazon WorkDocs over an encrypted connection and synced across their other devices.
Amazon WorkDocs can integrate with your existing Active Directory. This means that your users can easily access Amazon WorkDocs using their existing Active Directory credentials, and allows you to control which users in your organization are permitted to access the service.
