You can access historical revisions for a presentation in the History panel.
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 You can copy content from a previous revision and paste into any current presentation, allowing you to re-use historical content.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. Changes in your document are being saved in real time with new revisions created every five minutes.
Options in the Actions Menu
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 milestone 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 milestone as significant.
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.
