Site History report

Applies to:
MindTouch (current)
Role required:
Draft Contributor

The Site History report helps you identify when a page was changed and who made the edits, to provide a quick overview of how your site has changed.

  • Site history captures specific events that occurred on the site and displays them chronologically.
  • If multiple events occurred in the same day to a page, an expandable link will provide further information.
  • By default, Expert loads only 500 revisions. As you scroll down and are able to see the 500th revision, an additional 500 revisions will load.

Use the Site History report

  • Title: Displays the date of the event and a clickable title with path.
  • Time: Displays the time of the event.
    • If multiple events occurred on the same day for a page, the event collapses into one row. Click (more) to display all events that took place for that day.
  • Author: Displays who made the changes. Click on the display name to display the user contributions associated with that author.
  • Revision summary: Displays a short summary of the changes.
