Versioning / File History

You can easily keep several versions of the same file neatly organized and with unified metadata. Just add new version(s) in the file detail view and a new segment ‘Other Versions’ appears.

To add a new version of an existing file:

  1. Click on the file you want to add a new version of
  2. In details view click on the blue ‘Upload new version‘ button on the right side
  3. Drag a file to the upload area or left click it to browse for the file from your computer

The file is then automatically uploaded and becomes the current version instead of the previous file. The previous file is moved to below ‘Other Versions’ list and can be restored as the active version, downloaded or deleted for good. You can keep the file history with many versions in the ‘Other Versions’ list.

You can send every current version to approval. So if your document was rejected by approvers before and you upload a new version of the file, you can send it for an independet approval again!

You can also configure any folder with toolbar button ‘Columns‘ to display ‘Updated at:’ field. This will add a column to the list view showing the date of document’s latest version.
