Important: Intralinks VDRPro offers two types of freezing. To learn more, see Freezing the document index vs. freezing an exchange in VDRPro.

If your exchange allows folders and documents to be indexed, you can “freeze” the order of these items once the exchange is fully organized and no further changes to the structure are planned. Freezing affects both indexed and unindexed items. Once the index is frozen, no changes can be made to its structure; documents and folders cannot be added, moved or deleted. 

If, after you’ve frozen the index, you discover that additional changes need to be made that will affect the order of items, you can “unfreeze” the index and make the needed changes. Then you can freeze the index again as needed.
