Hi, I’m getting the following behaviour with group docs.
On save/edit a copy of the document is created and it doesn’t seem to be creating a history.
The history tab shows the following:

Thanks for the bug report! I’ve added a ticket for this:
Thanks for this Bree.
Any update on this problem? I just discovered this myself. Has anyone been using the Docs and found a work around for this issue? We were planning on using it extensively in a course for the Fall instead of google docs — anyone have experience using it? I worry that all those copies (and then the lack of history) will be too confusing and perhaps dangerous. Appreciate any tips on this.
Hi Sally and Troy,
We may be able to address the issue with duplicate docs in our next release in late August. It will include a BuddyPress update that may fix this issue, but I won’t know for sure until I’m able to test it. If the BuddyPress update doesn’t fix the issue, I’ll hopefully be able to give you an estimate for a fix.
The other issue with the doc history requires more work than our team has the bandwidth for right now. We won’t be able to include it in the August release, but hopefully we can give you a rough timeline soon.
I’ll update this thread again once I have more details.
Hi Troy and Sally,
Just wanted to say that a fix for this was included in the release yesterday.
Thanks for the heads up Bree, we’ll get that in. Also thanks to the whole team for their work on CBox and Openlab.
I was happy to see that the Doc copy problem was fixed during the upgrade – but I just logged into my course site (last log in was last week) – and there are no Docs at all and no History — not sure how / why it was deleted. This was an important course doc — any way to recover it? I thought settings did not allow regular student members to delete – only edit? ANy ideas / help is appreciated.
I’m sorry about the missing docs — that’s not good! I haven’t seen anything like this on our dev site, so I’m not sure if it’s related to the recent update, but let’s see if we can figure out what happened and help you restore the docs.
If anyone else on this thread has experienced anything similar, could you please report the issue here?
In the meantime Sally, I’ll respond shortly on the other thread you posted: https://commonsinabox.org/groups/openlab-help-support/forum/topic/group-docs-for-a-course-home-page-disappeared/
