Adding Versions

Versioning a file with the File Manager

Sometimes you may want to make an update to a document. Using the File Manager, you can quickly download a file, make changes to it, and then add the modified file back as a new version of the original file. Versioning a file, rather than uploading as a new file, helps to keep your files organized and makes it easy to revert to a previous file version without needing to figure out what the previous file was.
