Controlling changes

Question asked by David Watkins on Aug 27, 2013

I have setup a vault to test out using workgroup and I have a question about how to fit it into our workflow. We often collaborate on projects so currently we have network folders for files that are in development and another for released ones.  If a component is being updated it is copied from the released folder to the development folder and worked on there so changes don’t affect other things until it is released.

 

Now, after playing around with WPDM I understand when I check something out of the vault it copies to my working folder and I am working on it from there. However if another user needs the new version I don’t understand how to get it to them without affecting the released version? If I check it in, it affects the released version. I am looking into setting up a lifecycle but so far I find it to be overly complex and too much time for an admen to manage. Are there other ways to set this up?

 

Thanks,

David
