What is Mayan EDMS?

Mayan EDMS keeps documents in an electronic document management system (EDMS). It is an open-source software that has been storing files in a secure server since 2011. With document versioning, Mayan EDMS can store many versions of a document. You can download it or revert to an older version and know its status with document workflows. This is helpful if you want to know if a document could transition to other states. Mayan EDMS also features document linking and referencing. This creates short, rule-based hyperlinks called smart links that are easy to cross-reference. The system even has a clientless REST API or application programming interface. API works by responding with a list of documents to a user's search. If you delete documents by accident, you can restore them with trash can support any time.
