A new document will be created that automatically has the same title and document number as the document, that you created the revision for. The content fields will be empty initially, allowing you to upload the latest document versions. As pointed out by the red arrow in the image below the revision numbering will be automatically incremented. In case your original document was listed as revision A, the new revision document will be created as revision B. (Compare with the screenshot below.)

Please be aware that there can only be one valid document with the same document number. Since each new revision will automatically be marked as valid, PIRS will ask you to confirm that the new revision is supposed to be the valid one. The prior revision will be changed to invalid as soon as you proceed to save the new revision as valid document.


Image RemovedImage AddedBoth documents, the new revision as well as the original document are linked with each other and as illustrated by the screenshot; either document can be opened out of the other. This feature enables you to closely monitor the development of documents throughout the course of the project and at all times know the status and latest revision of all documents.
