Overview of Activity History

Follow

Working with multiple collaborators is a great way to quickly build guides and apps. However, we know it can sometimes be hard to keep track of who is doing what when. Activity History allows you to track these changes. 

There are a few different Activity History feeds available to you in Builder.

  1. Activity History for All Guides You Access
  2. Activity History for One Guide
  3. Activity History for One App

Activity History for All Guides You Access

If you are a Guide Admin or a Guide Editor on any guide, the activity on all of those guides will appear in your overall Activity History.

To access this view, click on the Activity  Screen_Shot_2017-05-24_at_3.23.05_PM.png symbol in the top-right corner of the Builder screen. (The activity symbol looks like a circle with a zig-zag line in the middle.)

Activity History also makes it easy to jump to recent changes. When you click directly on an edited or added item, you will be brought straight to the page where that change took place.

What's New in Builder

This overall Activity History also has a news feed for Guidebook Builder updates. Click "What's New" for announcements! When you see a red dot on the Activity symbol, you'll know there is news waiting for you.

FAQs

Can I revert any changes from the feed?

Unfortunately, you are not able to restore changes made to apps or guides. Activity History only displays a log of changes.

 

Can I turn off the Activity History?

No, Activity History cannot be turned off. You can condense each individual post, but the Activity History window will always be visible on the pages noted above.

 

How far back does the activity feed go?

The activity feed goes back to the app or guide's creation date. If a app or guide was created prior to the release of Activity History (May 11, 2016), the activity feed will only date back to May 11, 2016.
