The company’s existing folder structure will be copied into versiondog, retaining the original folder structure using directories and components from the versiondog system. This process can be automated thanks to VDogAutoCheckIn.exe for versiondog 4.5 or later.
Together with the CreateComponent function, VDogAutoCheckIn.exe can be used to create directories and components and to copy project data into components. Just like the VDogAutoCheckIn.exe function, the CreateComponent function is available to all customers for no additional cost. Both functions also have corresponding tutorials that are available in versiondog INFO.
AUVESY recommends using the automated processes of the VDogAutoCheckIn.exe and CreateComponent functions when transferring an existing folder structure into versiondog. A PowerShell script, used for automating the process, can be obtained as a technical demo from AUVESY. The PowerShell script will scan through the specified folder structure, searching for a predetermined file ending. When a file with that ending is found, versiondog automatically re-creates the path and the original folder structure. The user can then continue working on the projects as before.
