Quick guide

Archiving a Document

To save and encrypt a document in the Archive, simply drag and drop it onto the ARCHIVE icon.
To verify the successful completion of the operation click on the Expand button and access the Archive, here you will find the document in the two system folders "Author" and "Date", based on the properties of the archived file.

Consult the Archive

The MyDò Archive allows you to keep your signed and unsigned documents in an organised manner. The documents stored in MyDò are encrypted to ensure their security. To access the Archive click on the EXPAND button.

The Archive presents

  1. On the left side the organization of the tree folders;
  2. In the middle the list of documents in the folders;
  3. On the right side the preview of the document. This area can be enlarged or reduced by manually moving the divider bar between the 2 areas;
  4. In the upper bar the "search" field that allows you to search documents by name or part of them.

In the MyDò tree structure you will find by default the AUTHOR/DATE/PREFERENCES and PERSONAL DOCUMENTS folder

  • AUTHOR - folder with automatic feeding; in this folder the documents stored in MyDò will appear automatically organized by author of the document itself.
  • DATE - auto-feed folder; the documents stored in MyDò will automatically appear organized according to the date of creation of the document.
  • FAVOURITES - manually fed folder; to add a document to your favourites, simply drag it to the folder or right-click on the document title and select the Menu item "Add to Favourites".
  • PERSONAL DOCUMENTS - manually fed folder; MyDò provides by default this folder and its subfolders for the organisation of your documents. Folder and subfolders can be renamed or deleted.

Using the functions in the Archive

By positioning yourself on the title of a document saved in MyDò and right-clicking on it, you will be able to call up the following functions.

  • DISPLAY THE DOCUMENT - allows you to view the document in MyDò.
  • RENAME - allows you to change the name of the document in MyDò. Select the function indicated, change the document name and press the enter key to save the change.
  • ADD TO FAVOURITES - adds your chosen document to the preset "Favourites" folder.
  • SAVE A COPY OF DOCUMENT - saves an unencrypted copy of the document to the desired directory.
  • SIGN THE DOCUMENT - allows you to sign a document saved in MyDò
  • DELETE - allows you to delete the document from the Archive. By selecting this feature you will be asked whether to delete the document only from that single point, or also from any folder, including those with automatic feed (Date and Author), where the document is located by checking the "Delete all document references" box.
  • REFERENCES LIST - allows you to view the Author of the document and the folders and subfolders where the document is located.
  • OWNERSHIP - allows you to view the properties of the document.

By clicking on the button at the top right you can call up the Backup/Restore functions.

Backup: allows you to extract the entire archive and make a copy of it (e.g. on a hard disk location if the archive is on a stick or on an external disk). It is sufficient to specify the destination path, the archived files remain encrypted even in the backup copy.
Restore: allows you to re-import a backup copy back into the archive after entering the security code. Obviously each file previously imported will be replaced by the files in the backup copy.

Create new Folders

MyDò allows you to create your own Folders and Subfolders. To create a folder, simply position yourself on an existing one (Author, Date or Personal Documents) right-click and select the "New Folder" command. Once created, you will be able to rename it and/or add one or more subfolders by positioning yourself on the parent folder, right-clicking and selecting the "New Subfolder" command.

Which Signature to use?

MyDò allows you to sign documents using the simple qualified electronic signature or the advanced electronic signature with smart card.
Although technologically identical, the simple certified electronic signature is only valid for the organisation that issued the certificate (internal value), while the smart card signature has legal value.

Signing an Office document

1. To sign a document drag the document to be signed onto the icon.

2. Select the signature certificate to use, User Certificate or Smart Card, by clicking on the corresponding icon.

3. If you want to save the signed document in the archive and/or verify the signature upon completion of the operation, put a flag on the corresponding boxes.

4. Click on the Signature button.

After signing the document you can consult it in .p7m format:

  • in the MyDò archive (encrypted and signed)
  • in the source directory of the (signed) document if you have not chosen to save it in the Archive

This functionality is similar to the previous one but dedicated only to PDF files.

1. To sign a PDF document drag it onto the dedicated icon.

2. Click on the Sign document icon and draw a rectangle to outline the fima area.
