Control of new and revised versions
It is important to ensure that employees only use relevant and approved information. Trix products contain features to control this in various ways by managing user groups and their roles in the business. Information is commonly published – primarily in document format – in multiple versions, editions or revisions. Regardless, the purpose is to ensure that the change in the information is clear, so that the reader understands that a change has been made. Once the change is approved, the older version is saved for traceability purposes using clear versioning and related work processes.
We use the basic concepts of versions and revisions, where the revision is the version that has been assigned the highest level of approval. Consequently, any version can be approved as a revision, and not just the most recent version. Trix products support this approach, either simply, or more advanced with multiple sequential steps, as needed.
