is it possible, to allow for documents to be versioned and organized into directories?

  1. say, i have document regrding a component of my platform, say, component1
  1. i have created the design document of this component: component1-design_1.0.doc
  1. after some time, the design has changed, i need to update the design document. for this reason, i upload the new document into the documents repository in redmine and i do specify the version of the document.

then, while refering to the document from the wiki, i will always get the newest version of the document (the newest version will be the default one) however, i am able to change the default version of the document to custom one


 `-  components
      `- component1
         `- component1-design
            |- v1.0
            |- v1.1
            |- v1.2
            `- v2.0

We would also like to have the ability to attach more metadata to documents so that they can be filtered better.

It would be nice to be able to attach a Project "version" to a document.

Repository (Subversion) is the similar functions.

The following functions are not enough.

  • add (file, folder)
  • checkout & lock
  • commit & unlock
  • metadata

I've just added a similar request - #800. Although my needs are much simpler, and don't require quite the same level of hierarchy that you seem to need. While i agree that having a web-based interface for simple document management (with some version control) is a big win for many users, if you need such a level of control (with directories etc) you might have go with an actual VCS, as Sunday Walker notes.

We have similar requirements. Optional description field in 0.7 is great. But to have directories/indexes would be a big advantage. Is it possible to allow custom fields in Documents section?

Having some way to structure the documentation into folders/directories, and optionally even having versioning on them, is basically the last hurdle for us to get rid of our rather painful MS SharePoint server, as everything else is now moved to Redmine... +1 on this, even having just folders/directories would be a nice first step.

Hi there, this plugin looks really nice after look back to the current document management function on redmine v2.1.2; then is there any way we can replace the current document management function by this one (plugin), the reason is fair enough as document management is always sensitive and therefore a well control/manage system/function is love to have to bring certain value (get rid secret risk) to a project and project management tool like our beloved Redmine.
