IBM Docs has been upgraded in IBM Connections Social Cloud (March 2016)

Last weekend IBM Connections Docs was upgraded in the cloud again and a great new feature has been added to the Spreadsheet Editor: You now are able to protect cells and assign them the certain users. This allows you to ensure that only the people responsible fill out specific areas of a chart.

The full list of changes:

Common Services

  • While editing community files, after clicking File > Copy, a copy will be saved within the community, not the personal files list.

Spreadsheets Editor

  • Added Area Protection function by which you can give others edit rights or read only access for a cell range or a sheet.
  • Supported localized formula name for Brazil.
  • Enhanced the Hyperlink formula to support both URLs and cell ranges in current sheet or another sheet.

Viewer

  • Added .xlsm file format support in HTML Viewer.
