4.3 Update Save

As explained in the previous sections, the behavior of the Save to Aras command changes depending on the state of your current file. If you just created a new file using New Aras Document, clicking on Save to Aras will create the Aras Document and attach the file to it. If you are saving an existing file, the Save to Aras command will open the dialog to allow you to define the various options, then create the Aras Document and attach the file. Once you have done either of these to start working on an Office file managed in Aras, you can continue to use Save to Aras to just update the file in Aras. There will not be any prompts, similar to when you use the normal Office Save command after the initial save. This is referred to as an “Update Save” and is used to make sure the latest file is available in Aras.
