Link to last issued version

When linking to a document in Meridian, it would be useful to reference the last issued/released version, irrespective of whether there is an open revision being worked at.

    Rudi Pieters Nov 22, 2018 Is this to differentiate between a master and a revision under change, or is this also relevant within a project? Feb 7, 2019 This is so that the users of our documents (Sales, Service, Support) can access the latest released document. Feb 7, 2019 (we currently do not use master document functionality)

    Rudi Pieters Feb 11, 2019 I can see 2 ways to achieve this with current functionality: 1. Use Projects (or Managed Change folders, which do not require an additional license), this separes published documents from documents under change. In this way, consumers can access the documents in PowerUser/PowerWeb, but it would probably require significant changes to the configuration. 2. On release, publish documents to an Explorer repository where consumers will access them. In this case configuration changes would be small but the consumers would need to switch to another client.
