Revision history allows you to see what was revised, who made the revision, compare two revisions, and revert to another revision if necessary. You can see Revision History for all content pages made from new page templates and within template directory such as header and footer templates.
When reverting to a previous revision, certain information such as changes to page content, page properties, files, and file properties can be reverted. To learn more about what information can and cannot be reverted, read our article on page element revert rules.
Consider when attachments are involved before reverting pages.
