Creating a document version

Create a new version of a document.

If versioning is enabled, you can save a new iteration of a document without losing the previous version. You can also view and retrieve previous versions of the document. This provides a linear history of document changes. In addition to saving a document as a new version, you can restore a previous document version to the active version.

To create a document version:

  1. Click the down arrow next to the document name to display the menu.
  2. Click Versions.
  3. Click Create Version.
  4. Specify a description for this version of the active file.
  5. Click Create to create the new version.
To create a new version for a document that is locked or has a pending draft, you must own the lock, or have created the draft. Other users who are not owners will not be able to create a new version of a document that is locked or has a pending draft.
