Keyboard shortcuts expand the drag-and-drop functionality in CompuDMS:
Replace working copy (drag and drop)
To replace an existing working copy instead of adding the dragged file, just drop the file onto the working copy you wish to replace.
Add and create version (drag and drop + Ctrl)
When adding a local file to CompuDMS, you can immediately create a version of the file by holding the Ctrl key while dropping the file.
Add, create version, and archive (drag and drop + Ctrl + Shift)
If you are adding an older or outdated file that you merely want to store in an audit-proof manner, you can press and hold Ctrl and Shift to add it, create a version, and archive it in a single work step.
Replace, create version (drag and drop + Ctrl)
You can directly create a version when replacing working copies as well. Just drop the file onto the working copy you wish to replace while holding the Ctrl key.
Replace, create version, and archive (drag and drop + Ctrl + Shift)
You can directly create a version and archive the file when replacing working copies as well. Just drop the file onto the working copy you wish to replace while holding the Ctrl key and the Shift key.
With this tool, CompuDMS enables you to quickly gain an overview over all changes in your documents, helping your day-to-day work.
You can choose the windows that should be displayed. The desired source documents can be pre-selected in Word via “Review” > “Compare” > “Show Source Documents”. You can also close unnecessary windows directly in the view by clicking the X in their upper right corner.
CompuDMS provides you with a clear view of multiple versions of a Word document, giving you convenient and, thanks to the Word connection, rapid access to the files to be compared – sparing you a time-consuming search via the explorer.
You can also, of course, compare different Word documents, to check, for example, not just multiple versions of a contract for changes, but also track changes between multiple contracts.
