Applies To: Office 365, Windows Azure Rights Management
Within Microsoft Word, create a new document.
From the File menu, click Protect Document, point to Restrict Permissions by People and then choose a template or select Restrict Permission.
Note If this is the first time you are using IRM functionality, you will contact the Windows Azure Rights Management service to configure your client. When you do, you will be prompted for credentials.
Enter your Office 365 credentials to complete configuration of the Office IRM client.
Note If you are using Microsoft Word 2013, before you can publish IRM protected content you first need to do the following when starting Word 2013: Select Sign in to get the most out of office, and then when you see the Sign in to Office dialog box, select Organization or School and enter your Office 365 credentials.
Select a template or restrict permissions to people in your organization by email address or group.
