GroupDocs.Comparison for .NET is a downloadable library designed to let developers seamlessly add multi-format document comparison functionality to their own applications or 3rd party services. It allows end users to compare two versions of a document in a web-browser without having to install original software used to create the documents. Supported file formats include: PDF, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, plain text, HTML and ODT.
Today we’re pleased to announce the release of a plugin that allows developers to integrate GroupDocs.Comparison for .NET into SharePoint. When installed, end users will be able to compare two versions of a document directly from within your SharePoint environment. Key features include:
Multiple File Types Support: PDF, DOC/DOCX, XLS/XLSX, PPT/PPTX, TXT, HTML, ODT.
Cross-Platform Compatibility: end users can compare documents from any web-enabled device using any standard web-browser, including: Internet Explorer 8+, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari 5+.
Easy deployment: there is no need to install any software or browser plugins on the client side.
Convenient User Interface: GroupDocs.Comparison visualizes differences found between two documents using a redline “Track Changes” view approach, which should be familiar to Microsoft Word users. The UI also provides end users with a comprehensive set of controls, which makes it easy to navigate documents and review changes in a web-browser.
Advanced support for Microsoft Word documents: when comparing Microsoft Word documents, users can accept or reject found differences and then merge the compared documents into a final file.
