Pepper Flow stores all past versions of a document, including all the annotations added to that document version. A document’s versions can be seen when you click History in the bottom toolbar of the Viewer.
- Major versions
- Minor versions
Major versions are identified by whole numbers, such as 1.0, 2.0, 3.0; minor versions are identified with decimal numbers, such as 1.1, 2.1, 3.1.
Major version numbers are connected with changes in a document’s approval job status. A major version number advances when the document has completed an approval job. Any approval jobs started after a version is approved will advance the major version number. For example, document 1.1 completed an approval job. Two weeks later, the document was put through another approval job changing the document’s version number to 2.0.
Minor version numbers are connected with a document’s changes. A minor version number advances when the document has been modified in the review stage of an approval job (ex. fixing a typo) but the job has not yet been completed. For example, document 1.1’s final vote was amend and resubmit. When the content owner amends the document and resubmits it for another review, the document’s version number will change to 1.2.
