When I Check in a drawing, WPDM keeps overwriting the 'AUTHOR' property with my name. I didn't create the drawing! How do I keep this from happening?
It seems like there is mapping taking place which is causing confusion. Open vault admin and take a look in the tab for "properties".
author = person who checked in.
you cannot stop it.
you can change the label (author) to something else using vaultadmin.
existing documents will keep the author property and this newly mapped property will be added.
going forward, you will have to manually delete the original "Author" property from each document.
