Centro Control is a Centro Catalog feature which keeps resources—including CAD files, images, and documents—from being overwritten.

A user with appropriate permissions can check out a resource and be confident that other users cannot simultaneously make changes to the file. An audit records when the resource was initially uploaded and when edits were saved. The audit trail includes the following:

  • User name

  • Date

  • Time

  • File type

  • File name

  • File size

Check in a resource...
