RSS announces its recent launch, which allows anyone to track the movements of their word documents. Similar to the “read-receipt” technology available for e-mail, users of Microsoft Office will now be able to check when their documents are opened.

  • A map of the United States pinpoints the actual locations of those who open your document.
  • An itemized list details each instance that the document is viewed, and a suite of charting and graphing tools provide further analysis of your document's travels.
  • The free online tool will optionally e-mail you each time that someone reads your document.
