When creating new versions of documents, there are two distinct cases. The first is updating a document without changing its name, the interface will pick up on this matching name and guide you. The second case is updating a document with a different name, in this case you will have to explicitly mark these are different versions of the same document.
If you attempt to upload a document that has the same name as an existing Compliance Vault document, then the interface will prompt you to create a new version of that document. Document versions have their own cryptographic proofs and their own data storage but will only be displayed as a single entity in the “My Documents” panel.
When you upload a document with a matching name, Compliance Vault will prompt you to either create new version create a new document:

From here you will be prompted to select a document on your machine to upload. The selected file will be marked as a new version of the existing document and will now show up in the detail view as part of the document history:
