Document Versioning in Annotation


#1

Hello,

As users annotate the doc, is there any way to control the version. Say for example, a user annotate a doc and another user does elsewhere in the same doc. Will someone be able to distinguish these two versions of annotated doc?

For an instance, let’s say I want to download a prior version with only 2 annotations (e.g., version 1), and 2 other annotations that made in a later version?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Azam

Hello Azam,

Thank you for interest in GroupDocs.Annotation for Java library.
Unfortunately out-of-the-box there is no such functionality. But you have full control over meta-data storage through the IConnector interface (see the documentation on this http://groupdocs.com/docs/display/annotationjava/How+to+store+annotations+in+a+DB). I think you can try to implement track of changes for every document and then open load only meta-data of the required version.
