Warning that you are not viewing the most current version of a file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We upload many technical drawings to sharepoint. Now quite often these drawings are changed and uploaded again. If a user opens an old version of a drawing is there a way of flaaging up a warning to the user saying this is not the most current version

  • I'll move this admin (for starters - it probably can't be solved by admin measures) as it certainly isn't a general question.

    BUT please in the meantime advise how you are "changing and uploading". If you are doing this normally the latest version will over-write the original version and so users will always see the latest version. This will happen in document libraries with versioning and in document libraries without versioning.
