Update (Supersede) a Document

If you need to upload a newer version of a document that is already in Aconex follow these steps.

In Aconex updating a document is called 'superseding'. 

Follow these steps to:

  • Add a new version of your document (make a change to an existing document), or
  • Correct a mistake (such as fixing a typo in the title, or setting the correct discipline)

The new version will become the current version of the document. All versions of a document are kept in Aconex automatically. If you want to view an older version, you can do so by accessing previous versions of a superseded document.

  1. Click Documents and select  Document Register.

  1. Either enter some details of the document you want to search for, or just press Search.
  1. Click the more options menu on the row the document is in.
  2. Select Edit / Upload new version.     (previously this option was named  Supersede)

  1. You'll see all the details of the current version for the document. You can update any details except for the document number. Make sure all the mandatory fields marked with a red asterisk are filled in.
  2. If required, drag and drop a new file or click the click to upload link to upload a file. You can also select files from other sources by clicking the Choose source button. Once you have located the new file for this document, click Open.
  3. Click Supersede Document. Your document has been updated.

Whats next?

Now the document has been updated, you may want to send this new version to organizations that have the previous version. See Transmit updated documents to people who have old versions using an auto update transmittal
