Frequently Asked Questions
What is Xtensio?
Xtensio is a creative collaboration platform to design living documents, work together with internal and external teams, and flexibly share your work as digital presentations, responsive web pages or exportable PDF or PNGs.
What's a folio?
Folios are full-screen digital presentations, responsive web pages and exportable PDF or PNGs all-in-one. A folio can be anything from a brief business strategy exercise to a full-length presentation. Start with one of our templates, or create anything you need with the blank slate tool.
Your folios are live pages that you can edit and collaborate on with colleagues, clients and other key players. All of your changes—from dragging and dropping modules, to editing graphs, to changing colors— will save and sync instantly across devices. Here’s more on Making a Folio.
Do I have limits on how many templates I can try?
No. You can try all of our free templates with any of our plans. The limitations are only on your active folios. On the Free plan, you may have one active folio at a time. If you’d like to create another folio, you upgrade to one of our premium plans or delete the folio that’s currently active on your dashboard.
Is my data private and secure?
Yes. All Xtensio plans include 128 bit SSL encryption and backups to ensure your data is secure. Your work belongs to you. Your folios are private unless you decide to share them or make them public. Here’s more on the range of sharing options on Xtensio, from completely private to public.
Is Xtensio really free?
Yes. You will never be asked to provide credit card information for Xtensio’s free account.
What would I get by upgrading to a premium plan?

What would I use the Project Handover for?
Handoff documents are useful during a variety of situations, such as organizing a project handover to a client, different department or contractor, shifting to a different position or project, or making sure your responsibilites are covered while you’re away from the office.
What information should I include in the handover?
You should include any and all information that will make the project successful. Give an overview of the project to describe what the main goal is and why you’re handing the project over. List all the project contacts. And clearly list any essential documents, tasks and deliverables that will need to be completed and who is responsible for each step. You and your colleagues can regularly update the living handover document and share the link to keep everyone up-to-date on the project’s progress.
What is a living document?
The living Project Handover template allows you to instantly sync your entire team on the project. The document evolves as your project does. You can add collaborators to work in real-time. And you can share the customizable link to keep internal and external colleagues up-to-date as the project progresses.
Can I add colleagues to edit my handover document?
