Product: Web UI Release Date: February 10, 2021

Watermarks for files viewed through preview-only links (limited availability)

An Admin can turn on the watermarks feature, which will be applied to all files viewed through preview-only links (it will also be applied to older links, created before enabling this feature).

The new setting will be available in the Configuration > Settings > General section. The Admin can provide one text for the whole domain, and it can contain a special code {{viewerIpAddress}} which will be dynamically replaced with the viewer's IP address.




The text will be displayed diagonally in the preview.




Disabling the feature in the Settings will remove the watermarks from all files viewed through preview-only links.

This feature will be enabled first for a few selected customers (on the Enterprise plan). To enable watermarks on your domain, please reach out to your Customer Success Manager or Egnyte Support.
