Revision History

 

Want to recover a previous version of a page? Revision History saves backup copies each time you save a draft page or publish a page. ProProfs will store the last 30 revisions of each page. The versions allow you to look back at the recent changes you’ve made and revert to an earlier version if necessary.

 

Benefits of accessing the Revision History of a page:

  • See all previous versions of a page along with their respective date and time of creation.
  • Restore any previous version of a page.
  • See the difference in the content of any two versions of a page.
  • Comment on any version of a page.

Here's how you can access the revision history of a page:

Step 1: Select the required page from the table of content and click the Revision History icon on the far right, as shown in the screenshot below.
