Version Control Software
Collabor8online Automatic Version Control
When a document is uploaded the version number is automatically incremented. System administrators can accept the updated version or, if they wish, revert to an earlier version of the document using our version control software. Users only ever see the most current version, this reduces errors and minimises the possibility of costly mistakes.
When new versions are issued, push notifications inform users and stakeholders that a new version is available. A comprehensive audit trail tracks user activity, confirming to administrators that new documents have been successfully distributed and downloaded by users.
Document naming conventions vary from company to company giving document controllers the ongoing challenge of recognising when a new document is, in fact, a newer version of an old one. Smart add uses intelligent matching techniques to recognise similarities in document names and gives document controllers the ability to either match, not match or discard new documents in a slick and smooth automated process.
Using smart add controllers can instantly match newer versions to old ones, adjust naming conventions and record their actions. They can easily identify new documents and upload them accordingly or, they can temporarily discard the upload pending further investigation as to the origin and history of any particular document.
Version numbering as you like
