Let us take a look at two scenarios in which having an in SharePoint Document Viewer would be very useful. We will discuss how SharePoint Document Viewer, by BoostSolutions, will help you complete your tasks quickly and efficiently
Here is the first scenario. You are looking for a certain document within your SharePoint library. You have an idea of the content but you cannot remember the name of the document or where it is in your SharePoint library. You are also not sure if it is a PDF, a word document or in another format. So what do you do?
Well the only thing you can do at this point is start downloading documents and opening them up to see what is inside. This is probably your worst nightmare and you can envision yourself spending the next decade looking for that elusive document. Worse your boss is breathing down your neck, your client or someone in the office needs that document now, deadlines are looming. So is there a better solution?
Yes! Simply download and install SharePoint Document Viewer. Why? Well to make your SharePoint life easier for one, and to save you the agonizing and time-consuming task of downloading and checking documents individually.
Here is how it works. First install SharePoint Document Viewer. Once installed you go to your SharePoint library and select and open your document. And like magic a window will pop-up with your document ready to be viewed.
The best thing is SharePoint Document Viewer can open a wide range of popular formats from PDFs , Microsoft Office documents, images, etc. This will allow you to quickly and easily view your documents. Within seconds you can be checking documents looking for that elusive document.
Once you find it what do you? Well you can continue to use your document within SharePoint Document Viewer. But if you need to send it so someone that is very easy too! Just click “send attachment” or “send link” and the document or document link will be placed in a new email within Microsoft Outlook.
