Document Viewer

Document Viewer enables you to view documents directly in the Now Platform rather than having to download them.

Document Viewer supports viewing various file types in the platform. The maximum document file size that Document Viewer will display is 50 MB. To use the Document Viewer, enable it at instance level and for the tables for which you want to use it.
Note: Document Viewer does not support FedRAMP instances, instances that are on-premise, or instances that use Encryption Support.
The file types that Document Viewer can display are:
  • MS Word (.doc) and (.docx)
  • MS PowerPoint (.ppt) and (pptx)
  • MS Excel (.xls) and (.xlsx)
  • PDF

You can also view image (PNG, JPEG) and text files in the platform. Other document types, for example, zip, exe are automatically downloaded.
