Compare, Track, and Review Versions and Variants

In this article, we'll explore and compare the differences in how you can manage content authoring and review processes using Scroll Versions and Scroll Documents.

Author and Review Process with Scroll Versions

Scroll Versions offers its own built-in workflow, which is helpful for keeping track of the status of various pages in a version. Additionally, Scroll Versions integrates with Comala Document Management through an extension app called Comala Document Mgmt for Scroll Versions.
