Telligent Enterprise 3.0's Document Preview feature leverages the FlexPaper solution to give you the optimum document file experience in Telligent Enterprise media galleries.
Here are some quick guide points about Telligent Document Preview:
This section covers which applications and documents are compatible with Document Preview.
Document Preview compatibility has been tested with basic Microsoft Office 2010applications (Word, Powerpoint and Excel), as well as with PDFs. The preview may work with files from previous versions of the Microsoft applications, but these have not been tested.
Once Document Preview is installed for a community, previews are automatically created for new and existing documents the first time they are viewed within the community. The time required to generate such a preview can vary based upon the size of the file and the interval at which the conversion process runs.
Document Preview only works with documents that are physically present in CFS, so it cannot currently be used with SharePoint or remote files added to a media gallery or post.
This section covers licensing concerns, file viewing permissions, and viewing restrictions.
You don't need any special licenses or subscriptions to use Document Preview. Licensing is included with your Telligent Enterprise 3.0 license.
When Document Preview is enabled on your community, everyone who has Media Gallery - Read Posts permission to a gallery can view the previews.
Document Preview is available to the entire community, and it does not exercise any media gallery permissions or restrictions above and beyond those of the application and group. That is, if a user has permission to view the media gallery of a group (Media Gallery - Read Posts), that user will be able to view all the available document previews.
As a further note, you are not able to use the Media Gallery - Download Files permission to control group members' ability to preview. The download permission only applies to download. It will not affect the preview.
In this release of Document Preview, having an end user license agreement (EULA) associated with a media gallery does not restrict previews of the gallery files. The EULA only restricts downloads.
This section demonstrates what you can expect while viewing, editing, or downloading a document using Document Preview.
The preview of a document is displayed directly in the viewing panel of a document.
If a preview is not available for a file, you still have the option to download it from different links on the page. (A file won't have a preview if it is not in one of the supported Office doc or PDF formats.)
When you upload a file, the document will be queued for conversion the first time it is viewed. During that time you will see a conversion message in place of the file viewer. The time it takes to convert a document varies based on the interval at which the conversion process runs and the size of the file to be converted. Your browser will check the status of the conversion every 60 seconds and render the viewer once the file has been successfully converted.
Uploading a document is no different from uploading any other media gallery file. After you upload the file, you see the preview on the media gallery page once the conversion process has completed.
When you edit a file that has a Document Preview available, a new preview is generated for the saved document. During the time between saving the edit and the new preview being generated, you can only download the current file.
You can download a media gallery document whether or not it has document preview available, as long as you have the correct permission for the gallery download.
The document viewer, once installed, can be configured to handle switching to full screen mode in one of two ways:
