Dash Hack: Avoid the oops
Protecting the original from the office’s notorious “oopsie” over-writer
How many times have you lost something valuable because someone else has overwritten one of your documents. Maybe you’ve done this on occasion yourself. An innocent edit, then a click of the save button and poof – its too late to go back.
There is a really easy solution to this in our Dash DDX Document Management software. By design you can’t EVER overwrite anything. It simply doesn’t work that way.
You CAN save a new version of a document: everything in DDX is version controlled (learn more about version control in another blog post here). Its just built-in, you really don’t have to think about it. But you can never save over an existing document in the system.
Likewise, deleting a document is a special privilege only granted by an administrator to certain individuals. By default, users don’t get to delete anything.
When protecting your documents is paramount, Dash DDX is top-of-the-heap.
