View-Only Dropzone Setting to Restrict File Downloads

preview_only_grey-1SendSafely now offers a view-only setting for safeguarding customer PII and other sensitive data submitted to a Dropzone. The new "Restrict File Download" feature blocks the download, save and print option when Dropzone users view PDF and image files. The files can still be viewed in a preview window on the SendSafely portal and within popular SendSafely integrations like our Salesforce, Zendesk and Freshdesk apps.

The Dropzone Owner or System Administrator can turn on this feature by taking the following steps:
  • Navigate to the Dropzone profile under the Account Menu > Edit Profile > Dropzone
  • Check the box next to the Restrict File Download (view only mode) option

DZ Restict File Download Option

Once enabled, you will be prompted to limit allowed file types to PDF and Image files (pdf, .png, .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .bmp). Choose Yes to update, or Leave as is to retain your previous settings. 

Update file types

Please note that if you continue to allow additional file types to be submitted (e.g. .txt, .xlsx, etc.) these will not be restricted from agent download. You can edit the allowed file extensions from any time from the Dropzone configuration screen as shown below. 

DZ view only file types

Once enabled, any image or PDF submitted to the Dropzone will be view only, regardless of method of access. Agents will only be able to access the file in a preview window with no download, save or print functionality.
