Protect Your Shared Documents With Passwords

Safeguard your shared documents on iWork.com by using a password. To add a password to your document, select the 'Privacy' box in the Publish window. Enter a unique password for the document. You can even use the OS X Password Assistant to help create a strong password. Remember to send the password to the intended viewer.

Once the document is published to iWork.com, any viewer will be prompted for the password each time they try to access this shared document. If the document is shared with multiple viewers, they all use the same password.

To take advantage of the new features on iWork.com, including password protection of documents, be sure to update your iWork software to the latest version by running Software Update from your Mac.

Stay Up To Date With Your Viewer's Comments

Viewers invited to an iWork.com document can provide feedback by leaving comments and document notes. Comments can be made on specific text in a Pages document, cells in a Numbers sheet, and on a Keynote slide.

iWork.com lets you know when a viewer has left feedback by sending you an email notification every time a new comment or note is added. You can adjust how often you receive these notifications by selecting from options on your Shared Documents page. Choose from Immediate, Hourly, Daily or Never.

To take advantage of the new features on iWork.com, including comment notification, be sure to update your iWork software to the latest version by running Software Update from your Mac.

To take advantage of the new features on iWork.com, be sure to update your iWork software to the latest version by running Software Update from your Mac. After updating your software, the next time you publish a document to iWork.com, an email verification is sent to your email address.
