|Sending||You can send up to 100 documents to 1000 recipients at once.|
You can select one of three ways to send your documents.
“Web Links” are links to your documents that you can distribute via e-mail, web, or any other means. When your recipient clicks on the link, they will be able to view the document in their browser (Windows and Mac, Flash and Adobe Reader required)
“Send to Adobe Reader or Microsoft Office” creates a link to your document that your recipient can click to download a HoGo-protected PDF file that can be viewed on a PC or Mac using just the standard Adobe Reader, or protected Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files that can be opened in Microsoft Office 2010, and 2013 with the free HoGo Add-in.
Download – Documents that are set as downloadable can be downloaded to the recipient’s HoGo Viewer (Windows, iOS, Android) or Adobe Reader (Windows, MacOS) for offline viewing.
Online – PDF files that are sent as Web Links can be viewed online using a standard Web browser running Flash and Adobe Reader on PC and Mac. The document cannot be saved or re-transmitted.
The MyDocuments feature allows you to manage documents which you have uploaded to HoGo.
|History||HoGo keeps a log of your activities with helpful filters and search tools so you can find the information you want easily.|
|Package Detail||A “package” is created when you send one or more documents to one or more recipients. By accessing the package detail for any transmission, you can add or delete documents and recipients, change permissions, or even take documents away from certain recipients. This powerful feature gives you complete control over your sent documents.|

|Billing and Payment||
HoGo uses a points system where each document transmission, one document sent to one recipient, costs one point.
Each month you receive 5 free points. If you need more, you can purchase points using American Express, Mastercard, or Visa as well as Paypal.
