Documents created within the Verizon Thinkfinity Community are stored online. You do not need word processing software on your computer to create and edit documents within the community.
As a document owner, you can make the document private, open to anyone or just specific people. Additionally, you can allow others to edit the document, creating a dynamic and collaborative place for groups of people to work together on a single document.
