Primary Doc Rev Warning: When there is a change to the doc card you have three options for a warning using the drop down you can set accordingly.

  • None – there is no warning if you make a revision and do not change the primary rev number you will not get a notification
  • Require New – if you make a revision to a card it is mandatory that you also change the primary rev number
  • Warn if not changed – if you make a revision to a card and do not change the primary rev number you will get a pop up warning indicating that you have made a change but have not changed the revision.
