Compatible with your SharePoint environment

  • Office SharePoint Server: When running on MOSS rather than on WSS, additional functionality becomes available to visually browse for the destination folder.
  • Workflow enabled: Use the converter from a friendly user interface or use SharePoint Designer / Nintex Workflow to integrate document conversion into your own custom process.
  • SharePoint WSP Solutions: The PDF converter is automatically deployed to all servers in a farm using a standard WSP file.
  • SharePoint Features: The PDF Converter can be activated or deactivated at the Web Application level. Once active it can be accessed from all Site Collections in the web application.

  • SharePoint Trace Log: Document conversions, successful as well as unsuccessful ones, are written to the SharePoint trace log.
  • Windows Event Log: Unexpected errors, such as corrupt documents, are reported in both the trace log and the Windows Event log.
  • SharePoint Security: The system prevents the user from converting documents to folders / libraries or sites they don't have access to.
