On RDS server can word/excel docs be made read only
Posted on 2012-12-28
Both Office and Plant users connect to a Citrix 4.5 / Windows 2003 RDS server. The plant users receive word or excel in email attachments. We do not want the plant users to be able to modify the attachments sent to them.
Office 2003 is installed on the RDS server. How can we make plant user attachments read only, while allowing office users to modify their attachments?
We have thought of making the plant user's desktop read only, but the plant users would still be able to open the attachment, make changes and then print the changes. Read only desktop would only prevent saving the change document.
We thought about installing the word/excel viewer, but could not figure out how to associate the viewer with plant employees and associates the office programs with the office users.
