Under pw .434
Versioning gave me a new behavior starting today
From outlook when I export an email or it's attachment I now see (1), (2) (3) instead of being ask to create a new version?
And suddenly in the middle of my work, version start behave as i'm used to
Anyone have an explication?
did your Document Creation Conflicts settings change for your user account (or the datasource as a whole)?
Nope, did not change any of those settings. At least intentionally :-)I could not tell which of those settings could trigger this behavior
These settings produce the effect you're seeing of adding (1), (2), (3) to the end of file/document name, however i don't see a way to cause this without it prompting me. With these settings I just click OK and it does what you're seeing.
Default action setup:
New Document Name format & rules:
I thought turning off "Show Select an Action Dialog" and "Show Define Document Rules dialog" would make it automatic, but that doesn't appear to be the case (unless being an Administrator overrides them)
Did some test to force new version creation
But every time i export an attachement from outlook to PW, being an excel sheet it create a new document instead of version.
The only way I can create a new version is to save on disk and drag into PW
ah, that sounds like something particular to the Outlook ProjectWise integration. Might have to open a ticket with Bentley on it.
I just tried this myself and instead of creating a new document (or version) I get an error:
and it won't let me upload an attachment at all.
