Wyn Enterprise: Hide Documents

Hiding lets you secure important documents from unauthorized access containing sensitive data. These documents, if hidden, are not visible to the users on the Document Portal with insufficient permissions. Hiding also safeguards the documents from accidental modifications.

Let’s suppose, you created reports containing sub-reports and shared them with other users. But you want others to access the sub-report only when it is embedded in the parent report. It means, other users cannot access or run the sub-report individually. So, in such a case, you can hide the sub-report to avoid unauthorized access or modification.

In Wyn Enterprise, you can easily hide a document using the Hide in Document Portal option in the Info panel. In the case of multiple documents, you can use the Batch Editor button to hide multiple documents at the same time. This will save you both time and effort.

Note: The Batch Editor button is only available on the Resource Portal.
