Version control when using office connector in Confluence

I am using the office connector function in confluence to allow collaboration and editing of documents by multiple team members. 

This function allows us to edit documents without having to download and then upload each time but it doesn't seem to track version control. 

When using the traditional download/ upload function the confluence page will automatically version control and you can view/ revert to previous versions via the page history. 

Is there some way to automatically version control while using the office connector or has anyone found any good ways of dealing with this?

Hello Jennifer,

Thank you for contacting us.

There's not currently a feature in Confluence like this, but we do have a request for it below:

Thank you for your understanding!
