Version handling in QBank

Since assets often change over time, QBank allows any media to exist in several versions. This means you are able to access previous versions of assets at any time, while always making the latest version available.

If an asset exists in several versions, this will be indicated with a number after the Versions section (see below). Unfold the versions list by clicking on it.

Adding a new version of an asset
To add a new active version of any file stored in QBank, simply navigate to the detail view of an asset and drop any file on top of it. Click on "New version of current media", enter a version comment (optional) and click "Start upload". 

You can also, when in detail view of the asset, add a new version by clicking on the icon for "Upload New Asset", see image below. 

It will trigger the following dialogue-window, where you can either drag a file into the window or browse for a file from your computer.

 

The asset will now be appended as a new version, and will appear under the Versions selector (see below). All versions share the same metadata, so any existing metadata will be kept intact. 


Reverting to a previous version

If you need to activate an older version of assets, simply hover over a version and click the "Revert" button. Fill out a revert comment (optional) and confirm. To preserve the version history of asset, a new version will be created containing the selected one.
