You can access historical revisions for a presentation in the History panel.
View Presentations History
To open the History panel, select the History icon in the far right menu. In the open History panel you will see a list of revisions for your presentation.
Creating a presentation automatically creates the first revision. You can copy content from a previous revision and paste into any current presentation, allowing you to re-use historical content.
The name of the author is visible on the card, as well as a small swatch with an assigned color for the author.
Use the History Panel
When you hover over a revision, the entry is highlighted and you can click on the arrow on the right to access a menu of actions.
The menu includes the following options:
- Create Milestone allows you to enter a name for the milestone and add remarks. Milestones are used to mark a notable revision for quick reference in the future.
- Open opens the revision in a new tab.
- Export PDF exports that revision of the entire presentation. This allows you to review the revision or send historical versions to stakeholders or auditors.
Milestones and Starred Revisions
When a revision is created, an empty star appears in the upper left-hand corner for that revision in the history panel. You can click on the star to add a yellow fill and mark that revision as significant. Milestones can also be starred.
Click the Create Milestone button at the top of the History Panel to designate your latest revision as a milestone. To edit remarks that have been added to milestones, double click on the text.
You can filter revisions in the History panel by milestones, starred revisions, time period, and author. This allows you to quickly find important revisions of your presentation.
To filter your revisions:
- Click on the Show Filters icon in the top right corner of the History panel.
- To filter by milestones, check the box to Show Milestones or Show Starred. You can check both boxes to show only starred milestones.
- Or use the Updated dropdown to filter by time period.
- Or enter the name of an author to filter by Author.
Multiple filters can be used simultaneously to find exactly the revision(s) you need.
To remove filters, choose the Reset link in the upper right-hand corner. Then click the Filter icon again to close the filter portion of the History panel.
