Add Select option to choose whether to display overlay in Viewable rendition




  • Adam McMillan

    Thank you for your feedback. However, I don't think that's a feature we would introduce, because the primary use case for an Overlay is to ensure watermarks are applied to documents that are not yet in a state that should be distributed, or are being downloaded by a user who should not have access to the un-watermarked rendition. I would suggest speaking to your Vault Owner to see if maybe your document permissions could be amended instead to give you the option to download the Source file.

    Hi Adam

    Thank you for your reply. We would like to add a little detail on requirement to remove any confusion.

    We want to use overlay function for Medical Device documents in status “Approved”. Purpose of the use would be to prove to the inspecting authority (they prefer papers more than IT -systems). The detail that we want to add in overlay are:

    • who printed the document,
    • documents version
    • when document was printed
    • what is the status of printed document

    Attached is the image of the overlay that we are looking for.

    Hi team,

    This is a kind reminder that we are waiting for your response on the comment that I posted on "May 7, 2020 11:56". The user are looking forward to having this feature and hope Veeva considers adding this on future release.

    Is there any update regarding this request?

  • Adam McMillan

    Jenish, please be aware that this is a product feedback forum, and whilst we welcome requests, it is by no means a guarantee that we will add these items to our near term roadmaps.

    My position on this has not changed, because I do not think it is a valid request for our generic platform capabilities to allow users to choose whether to download with or without overlays (since it is related to compliance in most of our customer configurations). That said, I will raise this with our Renditions team to see if they have any longer term roadmap items they could help with this.

    Thank you for your continued interest in the improvement of our product!
