Open password protected documents

Hi,

we have special projects which are high confidential an we would like to password protect the documents we put into Wrike (Word, pdf,Excle...).

It seems for me that the Wrike internal view can not open password protected files.

Is that correct or is there any possibility to open password protected files in the Wrike preview?

Best Sven

Hi Sven Passinger! I just wanted to post our support team's reply here so that others with the same question could see the answer too:

Wrike doesn't support the password-protected Word or Excel files at the moment. This is related to the technical limitations on the third-party resources Wrike Preview is using to preview the files. As a workaround, it's possible to convert these files to PDF as password-protected PDF files are supported in Wrike Preview.

Hi Lisa, unfortunately this is not a solution. Word and Excel files are fully editable. PDFs are not. So we want to work with the files, but need password protection for security reasons.

So the other way would be the possibility to store the files not in Wrike but on a company server. Unfortunately for this it would be necessary to link to a local drive. So the problem I described here: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360052550633-Linking-to-company-server
