Reviewing Documents in Home

If you are using a supported browser and you have been sent at least one review, you will see a tab in Home specifically for your reviews, including any binders sent to you.

Renaming Documents in Home

When you right-click on a document name in Home you will have the option to rename your document. After renaming, choose the checkmark to accept.

Previewing Documents in Home

To preview a document, right-click on any document name in Home and select Preview. This will open a new tab and allow you to view the document without first opening the document in Wdesk. You must have Viewer level access or more to utilize this feature. If you have only Viewer level access, you will see only an option for My Reviews.
