You can open and edit a document from Connected Desktop without needing to download the document first. The document opens in the default program used for opening the file type; you can make changes to the document and save the document in the program and the saved changes are automatically applied to the file in SmartVault.
For this example, we'll be using an Excel file opening in Microsoft Excel; different files will open in different programs, depending on what you have installed on your computer, however, the steps in this process are the same for differing file types. You can edit PDFs with additional tools in Connected Desktop. See Editing PDFs in Connected Desktop for more information.
