While Oroson accepts all files, only accepted files will be viewable on the platform. Other files will be downloadable from the portal.

✅ Live / Workings Documents in Google

✅ Google Docs

✅ Google Sheets

✅ Google Slides

Do reviewers see realtime changes and updates as they are made to live documents?

When you import a Google Document, Sheet, or Slide to Oroson, it becomes a stagnant file in Oroson meaning that it will only import the latest version of a live document or the file. Any changes or updates that you make to the file will not be visible in Oroson. This allows you to continue working on the document in Google Drive with your internal team without notifying your reviewers.

To present the latest document with changes, you can upload a new version of the file.
