    Step 2: Validation!

    Once documents are successfully uploaded by a user, they are reflected in the “Bookmarks” section within the platform. The “Bookmarks” serve as a reference or shortcut to access or view these uploaded documents easily.

    Step 3: Understanding Version, Revision& attributes control in the Collaboration for Microsoft

    3.1) Creating Versions:

    The collaboration features in Microsoft Office applications, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, often leverage the integrated version control offered by Collaboration for Microsoft Here’s an overview:

    Version Control in Microsoft Office Collaboration:

  • 1. Track Changes:
    • When you collaborate on documents stored in your 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, version history is automatically maintained.
    • Changes made by different collaborators are tracked, allowing you to view and restore previous versions of the document.
    • This feature helps manage versions by keeping a log of who made which edits.
  • 2. Co-Authoring:
    • Real-time co-authoring is supported allowing, Multiple users can work on the same document simultaneously.
    • Changes made by each user are visible to others, allowing for concurrent collaboration.
  • 3. Version History:
    • Users can access version history directly within Office applications. This feature displays a list of previous versions with timestamps and allows users to revert to earlier versions if needed.
  • 4. Sharing and Permissions:
    • 3DEXPERIENCE Platform provides granular control over document sharing and permissions.

    3.2) Reviewing the Versions:

    By utilizing the Revisions/Versions tool, users gain access to detailed information about file versions, allowing them to view, download, or access specific versions along with associated details like comments and ownership information.

    Checking File Versions and Status:

  • 1. Accessing Revisions/Versions Tool:
    • Click on the “Revisions/Versions” tool within the platform’s interface.
  • 2. Version Information:

    • Details such as maturity state, locked status, versions available, owner information, and comments are visible.
  • 4. Open or Download Versions:
    • Users can open or download specific versions directly from this tool.

    3.3) Creating Revisions:

    Options for Creating Document Revisions:

  • 1. Create Revision Including All Previous Versions and Revisions:
    • This option generates a new revision of the document that includes all prior versions and revisions.
    • It consolidates and maintains a complete revision history within the newly created version.
    • Users opting for this approach ensure that the entire history of the document is carried forward into the new revision.
  • 2. Create Revision Excluding All Previous Versions and Revisions:
    • This option generates a new revision that starts afresh without including any previous versions or revisions.
    • It creates a clean slate, disregarding the document’s historical versions and revisions.

    3.4) Validating Revisions:

    Ensuring the Right Revision in Microsoft Applications:

  • 1. Close Current File:
    • Close the currently open file within any Microsoft application.
  • 2. Access “Replace by Revision” Command:
    • Use the “Replace by Revision” command within the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.
    • This command allows you to swap the current document with the desired revision.
  • 3. Perform Replacement:

  • 4. Open Updated Document:
    • After replacement, reopen the updated document from the any Microsoft application, as shown in ref image below.

    3.4) Reviewing the Revisions:

    *When the “Include previous files with revision” option is selected within the Revisions/Versions tool, it allows users to access the comprehensive revision history of a file, encompassing both the current revision and all prior versions and files associated with it. Here’s an overview:

    Accessing Revision History with “Include Previous Files” Option:

  • 1. Revisions/Versions Tool:
