File History

Use the History tab to see a file's history and compare the current version to previous versions and to restore a file to a previous state.

Heretto CCMS maintains an exhaustive audit history for each file in the content library. Each time a file is closed, Heretto CCMS creates a revision that's saved as part of the file history. You also have the option to manually commit and save a file, creating a revision in the file's history.
