Archive Document Revisions (Client)

Archive and restore revisions of individual documents in a client if the vault administrator gives you permission. The vault administrator specifies the archive folder on the VaultAdmin Projects tab. You must own documents to archive or restore their revisions.

You can see which revisions of a document have been archived or restored on the History/Notes tab in the Document Information dialog box.

To archive or restore document revisions:

  1. Right-click a document in the vault view and select Archive/Restore Document.

  2. In the dialog box, select Archive or Restore under Task.

  3. Under Revisions, select the revisions to archive or restore. Use Set All or Clear All to aid in the selection. The latest revision is labeled (Latest).

  1. Click OK. For the archive operation, click Yes to confirm.
