3 Protecting and sharing documents
Sometimes you need to set a password for sensitive documents like payroll, budgets, employee evaluations. There are 2 different types of options for protecting a document: Save as tools Restrict editing

4 When you save a document, you can save with a password to open the document as read only. Individuals who receive this document are able to read only the document once they have the password. You can restrict the type of editing that can be done in a document by using the restrict editing command.

5 In the save as dialog box, click on Tools to see the drop down options
Select General Options from the menu and the general options dialog box appears.

13 Managing document versions
Retrieving a document by versions or recovering an unsaved file has been made easier by Microsoft. Document versions can be managed in Backstage using the info command and selecting which version to save. Word provides an option to recover unsaved document by saving every 10 minutes by default. You will be able to recover versions of your document as long as you haven’t closed your document or program. Under manage version you can also browse for unsaved files.

14 Managing document versions
The autorecovery command allows you flexibility in saving your word documents including more frequent backups.

15 Changing recovery time
It is easy to change the autorecovery time in word: File Option Save You can even change where you want word to automatically be saved by browsing a different location.

16 Delete all draft versions

Select delete Unsaved documents are found in a specific location on your hard drive. A file extension of ASD has been assigned to unsaved documents. The files located in recovering unsaved files are temporary files until saved.

17 Sharing documents Many of the documents created will need to be shared with others in the business environment. Before you share a doc it is important to ensure the doc has a professional appearance. Word 2013 has 3 tools to help you with this: 1. document inspector 2. accessibility checker 3. Compatibility checker

18 Document inspector steps File Info. Check for issues Inspect document
Document inspector dialog box opens –this command checks for hidden properties and personal info. Inspect button – word inspects the doc and displays the results in the doc inspector window. If any issues exist, there would be an “X” instead of a check in the box. You would then have an option to remove all and then the property is removed and the doc is ready to be shared.

19 Checking accessibility
The accessibility checker determines whether there are potential errors in your document and can alert you that the contents might be difficult for an individual with a disability to read. Before sharing your document, it is important to inspect it in case someone with a disability opens it.

20 Checking compatibility
Before sharing a document, it is good practice to check whether the document is error free and the formatting appears professional. It is also important to make sure other people will be able to open and read the document. Word’s built-in check compatibility tool ensures that a document’s features are compatible with other versions of word. The compatibility checker searches a document for features that are not supported by earlier versions of word and lists a summary of these features.

21 Publishing as a blog post
