Automate Assigning A Specific Tag To A Document When Open

asked on February 9


Can anyone please help?. I have created a Tag Watermark using the Username token to display the Username of a User on the document that User opens. Is there a way to automate this process such that anytime a User opens a document in the repository, the tag is automatically applied.

As @████████ says, using workflow will not work.  It sounds like what you want is a Group Watermark.

On the Everyone Group, open the properties and then go to the Watermarks tab.

Create the watermark as shown above.

Then go to Repository Options > Group Watermark and in the properties, go to the Watermark Header/Footer tab.

Add the Footer as shown above.

Thanks so much Bert. This is actually the solution. Worked perfectly.

Opening documents does not generate notifications to Workflow.

Why are tags needed when a document is opened? Wouldn't generating an audit report work as a way to present information on which documents were accessed?

Thank you Miruna. Actually we are looking at a standard practice where the Username of User will be watermarked on a document when that User opens a document. And as a way to ensure this happens when any or all Users open a document, we want a way to automate it. The watermark Tag allows you to do this but we now want to automate the process. I have searched the Workflow tools for any tool with On Open parameter... May be am missing something.
