Copying existing documents

You can upload an existing document and rename it as a new document to start fresh within the community. This creates a new uploaded document in the community, leaving the previously uploaded document in the community as it was when you last synchronized.

The new document will have the content of the previous one, but won't have its other properties, such as comments, collaboration settings, and tags.

Note: Making a new document in this way leaves you with an Office document that has the same content, but without all of the community-related information. To get the previous Office document with that information, go to that document's page in your community and click the Download link beneath its preview.

To create a new document from an existing uploaded document:

  1. In an Office app, open the document you want to start from.
  2. In the ribbon, go to Jive.
  3. Select Publish as a new document.
  4. In the dialog box, select a place in the community where you want to save the document.
  5. In the Title box, enter the new name.
  6. Click Publish.
