Okay, now it's time for you to try it, but you'll need to find a willing partner to complete the practice. In this session, you will set permissions for a Word document that contains proprietary information. You will also practice setting Read access and Change access for your practice partner.
Though this practice uses Word, the IRM options in Excel and PowerPoint work in the same way.
About the practice session
When you click Practice in Word, a practice document will download to your computer and open in Word, and a separate window with practice instructions will appear alongside (see picture).
Note You need to have Word 2003 installed on your computer.
- If the practice instructions aren't visible, or disappear when you click in Word, click the Word Help taskbar button and then click the Auto Tile button on the upper-left corner of the instructions.
- If the practice instructions cover up Word, click the Auto Tile button on the upper-left corner of the instructions.
Before you begin
