History (Control)

You can use the History control to display the created revisions (history entries) for an element directly in the form. The entries are reloaded each time they are opened by clicking the Load History button. The blue button on the right allows you to compare revisions. The context menu offers further commands to export individual versions or to open the form at the time of the revision.

Click HIstory on the left side of the toolbar and drag the control into the form. Once the control is placed, the properties open on the right.
