The Version Control feature in Connecter is designed to provide teams with better control of the assets production and review and approval processes.
In Connecter, each separate file is an asset that can be added to the Version Control, making it a “versioned asset.” Each asset can have unlimited versions added to the Version Control system if its content undergoes changes that need to be versioned.
Versions are named automatically, starting with “Version 1”, then “Version 2”, etc. When an asset is being versioned, a copy of its current content is stored in the dedicated storage part of the Version Control system. Also, the asset’s name, location, preview, and other metadata are added to the Version Control database.
When assets are displayed in the Assets View, Connecter performs an instant check with the Version Control system to determine if there are any versioned assets to mark them with the dedicated Version Control icon visually.
The diamond icon indicates that the asset is versioned.
For all versioned assets displayed in the Assets View, Connecter also checks if the current local content of the asset matches the content of any version already added for that asset. Depending on the status of the current local content of the versioned asset, the version control icon has two states:
Indicates that the current local content is unknown (not versioned) or its version isn’t the latest.
Indicates that the current local content is the latest version.
