Traceability for copied documents (Add Source Document's name and Author to Start point)

When a document is a copy, the Start point in "Versions & history" is the state of the original document at the moment of the copy.
It would be really useful for teachers to see where the original document came from. (Source Document's name and Author)

    @francois_boulet I am assuming you are asking for this for documents that reside within a company or enterprise.  Today with EDU accounts they are not companies and teachers and student accounts are not linked.  At some point we will have a more complete EDU solution where teachers and students will be under one entity and then all the traceability is already there.

    I agree here. would be nice if even copies could be traced back to the original, and if somehow the original could be easy to search. This is usually to find the original featurescript for me. I see the value for teachers here too since there may be many students (even from different semesters) all producing similar-looking models and it would be nice to tell them apart.
