In ConceptShare, Versioning occurs when a new copy of an asset is uploaded into ConceptShare and is layered on top of the existing asset. It is different than uploading a new Asset.
It may occur after:
- Feedback is given on the original Asset (in ConceptShare)
- Changes are made to the orginal Asset (outside of ConceptShare)
- An outdated asset is available in ConceptShare
When the Versioned Asset is part of a Review, the process of Versioning restarts the Review and notifies the Review participants to grant the opportunity to give feedback on the new version.
Feedback that was given on an earlier version in that Review can be Promoted to the current version of the asset. Promotion means that Draft, or Published Feedback can be selected from previous versions and copied to the current version. The feedback that has been promoted can then be flagged and resolved, edited, or marked as needing further changes. See the Further Reading links below for details on Promoting Feedback.
