Setting Versions

If you are sharing a document or working on an important assignment or a thesis or dissertation, you may wish to keep several versions as you are working.

To set versioning:

Once versioning is enabled:

File Checkout

If versioning is enabled, you may also want to use file Checkout (such as when you are working on a group project).
