Field Description Rules and guidelines

Branch

Select this option if you want Dimensions to add a period before the new revision number when creating the first new revision in this project for an existing item.

For example, if the revision number of an existing item is 2, the first new revision in this project will be 2.1, and the next, 2.2 etc. (The first revision number of a new item created in this project however, will be 1, and the next, 2 etc.)

Do not Branch

Select this option if you want Dimensions to increment the last revision number by 1 when creating the first new revision in this project for an existing item.

Note: it is recommended that you use this option, and that you use a single assigned branch.

For example, if the revision number of an existing item is 2, the first new revision in this project will be 3, and the next, 4, etc.

Allow user to override default revision number

Select this option if you want the user to be able to change the revision number that is automatically generated by Dimensions when creating new item revisions.

 

Lock project

Select this option to prevent users from creating new item revisions in this project.

The default is the setting defined for the project type in the Administration Console.

Always enabled

Select this option if you want items in this project to behave as if the CM rules defined for their item types are all disabled.
