Working with FossLook Document History

How to See the History of Changes Made to a Document

If you want to see all of the changes you and others have made to a document, you can check it's history records. There you can see which person made specific edits, changed information on the tabs, or attached a new file.

The document’s history allows you to view changes in the document fields, who made them, when these fields were changed, on whose behalf, and other useful information.

Let's take a closer look at how to use this module in your work.

The History Module

All right, the first thing you need to do is to run FossLook Administrator and make sure that the external module was started.

If for some reason you don't see this module in the list, you need to manually connect it. Although, now it's a part of the default FossLook installation package, so, most likely, it'll already be connected.

Enabling document's "History" function

If you want to enable the "History" for the document, you need to open it's document type in the "FossLook Administrator", and select the corresponding function.
