Drafts. Edits. Rewrites. Word documents. PDFs.
In a word: versions.
With Clio, you can easily keep track of all the versions of a document using the Versions feature. This way, you aren’t creating new documents each time you make and save changes, and you have the added benefit of being able to see all the versions, like this:
So, as an example, there are four versions of this “Trial Book.doc” document for this Matter, 00013-Smith. You can see when each was last modified, and that Version 4 is the latest. Now, instead of renaming and re-saving it as, say, “Trial Book-5.doc” on your computer, you can save it, as is, to your computer and then upload it to Clio.
To do this, simply click the “New File” link and do the following:
- Choose “Create New File” under the Select Option menu.
- Choose “Create New Version”
- Choose the file from your computer.
- Click “Submit.”
A new version, of the same document but with your most recent changes, is created.
