Lotus Doc Manager is a lot better at version and draft document control.  In fact, there really is no such thing in Quickr (unless 8.1 has it, which I can't install untill Novak gets his templates to work with it).  Version control is a necessity for ISO compliance and good document management.  We are running both Quickr and Doc Manager; too much for a SMB, in my opinion.  IBM basically told me in a conference call that Quickr could do everything Doc Manager does.  Well, they are wrong!

Quickr 8.1 can do automatic versioning. You can set it to be explicit (set specifically by the user or by a custom form) or implicit (all forms automatically version).

While I like this idea, as stated, Qr8.1 does this. As far as your templates, is this something that you might be able to do yourself? There are porting guides between the two that might help.

@2 - Jim - Does 8.1 support drafts as .x and full versions as whole numbers the way Doc Manager does? For example: I save a draft as version "3.1". I later edit the draft and save it as a "full" version and the number is "4.0". In doc manager I can retrieve any of the drafts or versions.

As far as the templates, see this: { Link }

Eric - who at IBM said that? you don't have to post it here, but I would love to know. We are fighting the battle of ILDDM vs Quickr and I would love to pass this along
