LogicalDOC's integrated Document Version Control automatically manages multiple document versions as it enters. A new version is produced and tracked every time a document is modified. The revision control is an essential part of control systems and document numbering. Hence the version number is always visible – the working copy (latest revision) is put forward for current operations, but the document's previous versions remain accessible.
Version control software allows you to monitor when any change was made and who performed it. A newly approved version is created when a user changes metadata or performs a check-out/check-in operation. Check-out/check-in operations will also generate a new file version.
