Can pdm standard be setup to increment revision on checkin similar to the way workgroup PDM behaves

We are a very small company(2 solidworks users) starting to use pdm standard, we have both come from a company using workgroup pdm and would like to implement a revision system similar to the way work group works, that is every time we check the file in a revision property is incremented.


It seems the PDM standard version number behaves in a way we could use as the revision, is there a way to show the pdm file version number as a custom property to be put on drawings?


If not, is there a way to set up a circular workflow that automatically changes states and every time a state is changed it increments a revision property?


Is any one else out there transitioning from workgroup to pdm standard experiencing the same issue?
