Take the scenario we have a software version 1.0 and have documentation for it. Now we come out with 2.0 and have new docs for it based off of 1.0. My doc authors have 1.0 in their version drop down. I as the admin go in and add 2.0 as the new version and set 1.0 to be hidden.
The problem is that all the doc authors still have 1.0 selected in their drop down and can still make edits to 1.0 documentation. They may accidentally write 2.0 information into the 1.0 doc version because they forgot to change the version selector.
- When a prior version is hidden the drop down version selector should automatically change to the next version
- Allow admins to mark a version as read only preventing any changes from this point forward (this is the preferred solution)
We need a way to help our doc authors from wasting time and making mistakes and version management is the biggest problem in the current UI.
