One of the main fears when transferring from paper-based to eQMS is how to handle a lot of file versions, how should we name them, should we import every single version?

You just need to upload the latest version without the number of that version (for example “Technical file”) and make a note in the file that explains a new way of managing process and the version that is uploaded is the initial one in the software. Now, when your documents are handled right by the software, you don’t need to worry about the audit because your paper-based revision history is saved in the file and software will take over in the future.

This is really interesting. I read something similar here: https://imdcr.com/from-paper-based-to-eqms-problem-naming-files/

It proves the point. :-)
