Sub-documents (sub-docs) are documents embedded in other documents. They can be useful for adding information that only makes sense in the context of the parent.
Sub-docs are similar to normal documents. They have security settings and revision histories just like top-level documents.
Sub-docs can be searched for, but not browsed to, in document and folders listings.
Keep in mind that sub-docs are dependent on the parent. They can't be promoted to parent (nor can a parent be demoted to child). Also, if the parent is deleted, the sub-doc will also be deleted.
- From the document you want to create a new sub-doc in, click Add sub-doc in the right-side of the screen. This will create and then immediately open a new sub-doc.
- Give the document a name and create the document content.
- Change the security permissions if needed. Permissions in a sub-doc inherit permissions from the parent document by default, but you might have an edge case for which you want to set unique permissions.
- Click Publish to publish your work.
