How to apply a watermark using the watcher

The Watcher’s Watermark operation enhances workflows by automatically applying pre-defined watermarks to unlimited documents instantly!

To use the Watermark feature within the Watcher, it is important to create the watermark within CaseGuard and then apply it within the Watcher Operations to copy to all your other files instantly. Like all the other operations within the Watcher, you can use it in conjunction with any other operation.

For example, agencies can apply their own company logo through the Watermark operation on all their files while applying redactions through Watcher AI Text Analysis. This will expedite the redaction process in large documents as well as give your documents authenticity and brand consistency.
