Project version history - manage and restore your project version

Modified on Mon, 11 Mar 2024 at 04:17 PM

Recently added Omniscope Evo version history functionality offers several benefits, particularly in collaborative environments:

Track Changes: Version history allows users to track changes made to a project over time. This feature is invaluable for understanding how the content or project has evolved, who made what changes, and when they were made.

Revert to Previous Versions: One of the primary benefits is the ability to revert to previous versions of a document or project. If mistakes are made or unwanted changes occur, users can easily roll back to a previous version without losing valuable work.

Collaboration and Teamwork: Version history encourages collaboration and teamwork by providing transparency into the editing process. Team members can see each other's contributions and collaborate more effectively knowing they have the safety net of version control.

Risk Mitigation: It helps mitigate risks associated with accidental deletions, overwrites, or other unintended modifications. Users can always access earlier versions, reducing the risk of data loss or errors.

Auditing and Compliance: In some cases, version history functionality supports auditing and compliance requirements. It provides a record of changes made to documents or projects, which may be necessary for regulatory purposes or internal auditing procedures.

Enhanced Productivity: Having access to version history can enhance productivity by minimising the time spent on manually tracking changes or recovering lost work. Users can focus on moving forward with confidence, knowing they can always reference previous versions if needed.

Overall, version history functionality contributes to a more efficient and collaborative work environment while safeguarding against errors and data loss.

To access the version history in Omniscope click on the 3-dot menu in the project's workflow. 

Similarly to Google Docs, the list of edit dates and times will appear on the right sidebar, showing the author's identity badge.

The historic snapshot will also highlight where the changes were made - e.g. a new block was added in the workflow, or a view was added to the dashboard, like in the image below.

Each version has its own menu, giving the author the options to make a copy, restore this version, or delete previous history.

The Settings

On the Admin side of the application, under the Advanced section, it is possible to enable/ disable the projects history and to pick the level of detail captured in the evolution, also specify for how long the history information is preserved.
