SP 2013 - Having Versioning ignore changes to Metadata/Properties? is it possible?

Hello. SP 2013, Document Libraries. I want the OOTB versioning to show only versions of the FILE being changed (or the file name). I want to be able to change a file's metadata/properties, and have SharePoint NOT consider that a new version. is this possible?

Thanks!

You could turn versioning off and then all changes would not create a new version. The best thing to do though would be to go to the advanced library settings, then to the versioning page, and set up versioning as you need. If it is not possible to set it up there as you would like, then you may need to do some custom coding..

Good luck...

Hi,

Versioning will trigger a =new version when the properties change as well as the file.

If the filename changes, that will create a new library item, not a new version of the current item.

No way around this.
