Skipping certain blocks in the document templates

Dear Dejan,

We started working with Conformio, and first of all: I think it’s very useful! Thank you for it.

I just have a question: I noticed all document templates have a block with “code, version, date of version etc” and later on a block with “change history”. This doesn’t make sense to me, since we are already using Conformio as a document management system where these things are already properly documented for each file. Can I remove these in my documents?

I am asking this because I want to make our documents as short as possible, so our employees actually do read them (the more unnecessary info the more distraction and I’m afraid they will scroll rather than really read). Therefore, I would also like to skip the “reference documents”. Is that allowed too?

Thanks for your advice.

Regarding code, version, date of the version, and change history, in case all documents are accessed only through Conformio, you can remove this information from the documents (conformio features can make it possible to track this information). The purpose of this information in the document is to keep document control information available for printed versions, or for electronic versions used outside conformio (e.g., a document sent to an auditor or requested by a client or supplier).
 
Regarding reference documents, this information is useful so people can be aware of related documents that can impact, or be impacted, by the document being read.
