After saving document DocImpress shows the status of it in tab "Changes". The DocImpress allows to view changes and finalize this document. When the file is ready, it should be submitted as a new version. The wrong version becomes the previous and is kept in the file history. This prevents data loss caused by human error.
Display changes in your presentation.
Here's a demonstration of DocImpress's integration with Microsoft PowerPoint. Open the file history for chosen PowerPoint document and explore presentation of particular submitters. Presentation changes cannot be viewed directly in PowerPoint. For this purpose, ByteUnited developed a tool that extracts raw text from documents. This tool allows you to compare text between different versions of a presentation.

You can do this by right-clicking the selected file on the tab "Changes". Selecting "Undo Workspace Changes" or "Undo File Changes" will undo the changes. The latest version of the file or workspace will be restored. "Remove New Files" is an option in the section "New Files". The workspace will be cleaned of all unwanted new files.
The last thing you do after working with documents is close DocImpress. DocImpress will check running applications and allow you to save files before closing. This allows data loss prevention if encrypted workspaces are closed and inaccessible. You can either force-close the application with data loss or go into the application and save the file. DocImpress closes the server session and quits when it is finished.
