I have a document management system that makes it possible to use a different path/filename for the document on the document server than for the local version of the document that the user works with. So on the document server the file might be "\\server\share\word\2006\march\123.doc" but the user sees and works with "c:\ProjectBlue\Analysis\New York.doc".
My question is: is there an advantage to this from the perspective of the document server? Every new document that's created can be given any path/filename that works best for the server administrator. Are there benefits to this re optimal use of the server, or anything else?
