Re: Versioning and workflows - a "draft" system?

Hi, I see, very clever! However, as far as I understand Mayan, a workflow affects all the revisions of the document at the same time. So for example if I have a public document in v1 and I am working on the draft of v2, with the above solution, as soon as I upload my v2 draft, the whole document bec...

Re: User interface problems (Mayan 3.3.6)

Hi, Thank you for the feedback. I also want to say though that although fine for testing, if you are rolling out in production and end up with a lot of documents then Cabinets is not the best way to go. The manual overhead quickly becomes high. I strongly recommend using indexing and smart links ove...

Re: MySQL Error 1235 on clicking Recently Added documents

Hi,

I just had a MySQL instance already installed on my machine for other purposes. I thought I wouldn't burden the poor thing with 2 database engines running at the same time :D

MySQL Error 1235 on clicking Recently Added documents

Hello, On the documentation it is written: PostgreSQL vs. MySQL Since Django abstracts database operations from a functional point of view Mayan EDMS will behave exactly the same either way. The only concern would be that MySQL doesn’t support transactions for schema modifying commands. The only mom...

Versioning and workflows - a "draft" system?

Hi folks, What would be really cool is to have the possibility of not showing to everyone the newly uploaded version of a given document as long as it doesn't reach 100% of its attributed workflow. While it is below 100% it could be stored as a draft with a "View draft" ACL available for users who a...

Re: Scan of Multipage Documents

I have a similar-ish request. I take photos of products so for me a Document is <a photo album, containing 1 or more photos>. When I update the photos of the product, I create a new version of this album, and my users can also browse back to the previous versions using the version history. So I am r...
