Document Versioning

A user can retrieve a document from DataStoreDSX, through Searching Client, and then (given sufficient security rights), it can be edited and saved as a new revision of that document.

When a Search Template is configured for Versioning, a Document Route can be used to review, approve or sign-off the new revision before it is made available to users for searching. Four new system approval states are available in Document Routing for this – Draft, In Review, Published and Rejected. With Document Versioning comes greatly enhanced Microsoft Office integration and support. New revisions of documents held in DataStoreDSX can be edited directly in their original Office application (e.g. MS Word, MS Excel, etc.) without the need for managing temporary copies on local PCs.
