Revision and History

In a project, it is important to know who changed what, and when. You can keep track of the current status of almost any element, artifact, diagram, or imported document by using a revision. With this history, changes can be tracked at any time. You can create revisions, compare them and reset to an earlier revision is necessary. Revisions are created manually or automatically.

Automatic revisions

Automatic revisions are generated at creation and each change of state. You can also create a task to always create a revision at a specific time.

Manual revisions

If you want to make major changes to a saved file or item, create a revision first. In the context menu of each item, you will find the Edit Revisions/Create Revisions command.

In the description field, specify why you want to create this revision. This makes it possible to return to an older state that is accurately defined and not just marked by the creation date.

Show revisions

You can get to existing revisions via the context menu command Edit Revision/ History.

Compare revisions

If you regularly create revisions, you can find out at any time who changed what and when. To see what has changed about an item in the meantime, you can use the Compare context menu command. To do this, select a current version and another version, or select two older versions. 

Restore revisions

If you determine that an older version must be restored, select the revision and choose the context menu command Restore. When restoring, the current state of the item is replaced by the revision’s state.

Export revisions

You can save a revision as an sxmi.file using the Export context menu command.
