How can we enable the Previous Version button. Right now its shows gray, though it has many versions within.
Your greyed out icon can mean a few things:
If you are experiencing #2, in the PDM Administration tool, assuming the permissions are managed at the group level and NOT per user, open the group properties. In my case, it's the Viewers group.
Click on Folder Permissions and check the "Read file contents" for the folders you want them to be able to read.
Then click on State Permissions and select "Read file contents" for each state you want this group to be able to read/get. In my case, I only want members in the Viewers group to be able to read the version in the Released state. This means Viewers won't be able to read/get versions that are still in work because if they can read/get a work in process version, they can print it!
NOTE: The file doesn't have to be in the Released state for them to read/get it, the file just has to have gone "through" the Released state and that version is the version Viewers can read/get.
Believe in The Q!
that option has to be allowed by your vault administrator.
