Ability to restore a previous revision, in case of mistakes
Yes!!! Please, please, please do this!
Good news! We're currently planning out the ability to restore a revision 💫
I'll keep you updated on our progress, and I'll be reaching out to a few of you to talk about how we can make this feature as seamless as possible.
I'm staggered that you can see older/revised versions but can't quickly select them. One of our writers has completely rewritten a story I spent a long time editing, so I'll now have to edit it for the second time…
It’s crucial that we can accept/reject individual changes. If this is to compete with Word this feature is needed.
Why wouldn't you have version control ? Seems silly and should be a feature
This needs to happen. Should never have been taken away in the first place
The other part that didn’t really excite me was the limitations around tracking changes and saving versions (and being able to restore old versions). Looking at old versions isn’t helpful enough when I’ve got a 1200 word article, I need tracking and the ability to roll back to saved points in the history. I’ve successfully managed to get the client out of multiple Word doc versions into Google docs, but the tracking is essential, and the version history on docs has allowed us to move to a single source.
Thanks for all the votes here. This is something we'll be looking into making possible in the next few months. It's definitely a valid one! Watch this space 👀
