Merge the same document with a different name

We have a system that outputs documents with unique names (eg name and datestamp). These get picked up along with their metadata file by M-Files and created as documents. This all works fine until someone needs to update the source information and outputs a new PDF.

Because the filenames are different, M-Files adds it as a second record.

Is there a way to get M-Files to create a new version of the existing document rather than adding it as a new record?

The metadata output will be the same, eg unique serial number and such.
