The things I like about Master control is that it keeps all of our documents in an organized fashion and allows us to find them with a simple or advanced search. Allows us to also view and edit documents as well and keeps all versions of the document to view at a later date. It keeps all revisions as separate documents which is helpful when comparing a change before and after we have implemented a change to the document.
What do you dislike?
when searching certain documents you either have a very hard time finding them or can not find them at all. Searching documents with slightly different names makes it difficult to find the right document. The search tool could be much easier to use when looking up a document name using the advanced search, requires a lot of information in different search fields.
Recommendations to others considering the product
When filing away documents use as many descriptive words, so that when you search them later you can find them easier.
