  • Any user with Read rights can use Adobe Acrobat Annotations on PDF documents stored in GoFileRoom and email documents as a link or attachment. However, users require Add rights to save GoFileRoom notes.
  • Scanning documents into a drawer requires the user to have Add rights to that specific drawer. Groups do not require Read rights, if it desired that the group only have Add rights.
