Include Option To Add Version Description when Profiling a New Document (Version 1)

Version 1 of a document may require a version description. In order to add description details to v1, you must first save and profile, and then go back to access the versions screen (unlike subsequent versions, where the details screen is displayed automatically).

Including a version description field on the Edit Profile/Tags page would be user-friendly and efficient.

Version details are important so it would be helpful if users had the option when creating a document to include the version details for the first version of the document.

Hi Sam

Suggestion for this one (albeit 2+) years since logged!  Details to describe the version of a document could be stored in the Comments field.  This is what I used to recommend when I was previously an iManage consultant as it too has no means of recording this information.

Hope this helps!

I agree in ndoffice, the ability to add a version description when uploading a new document would be extremely helpful as that is only available when saving a document as a new version. It is very misleading to the user when the description field is grayed out when uploading a new document.

It seems like this has been around for awhile. I'm a new administrator for our NetDocuments, and I have several users who would utilize this functionality!

 

 

Thanks,
