Document versions

If you attempt to upload a document that has the same name as an existing ProvenDB Document Management document, then ProvenDB Document Management will prompt you to create a new version of that document.

In the document history view you will see each version of the document as a separate item, and you can look at previews or proofs for each item individually.
