History of change in Actions and Screens and compare with previous versions

Collaboration
New

For many times we need to check the history of changes to an action or screen, it is also interesting to compare with an earlier version. It would work with the following steps:


1 - Click the right mouse button

2 - Select the option to view the history

3 - View the history with the name, modification date and an option to compare with the current version.

1 - Option to view history



2 - History window with the option to compare with previous versions

I agree it would be very useful. Needed it many times. 

Very needed.

A new pro step.

+1

It's been more then 7 years from the original idea. Will this ever be implemented? This is the only platform that does not have a separated file/Action/screen history, witch would be very useful instead of select a older merge, search for the action that we want to compare and try to guess the correct merge done.

Merged this idea with 'Show/Compare version of an Screen/Webblock/Action/Entity and etc....' (created on 10 Jul 2019 21:32:42 by Alexandre Costa)

During the development, we need to compare versions of specific objects and today it is a difficult task, arduous in OutSystems.

How would you expect this to work different from the current compare/merge functionality?

To get started faster in all aspects, you will access an object of your interest directly hen you can use this feature to merge or audit or even understand the path of updates of an object (action, screen, etc. ). During development, it's common to have doubts about "How this even works! OK someone changes this, but who? When? What version?

Of course, you can try to answer this with the current system of versions, but you need to work hard to get there.


This need to put changes side by side, focusing only on one object (Action/Screen/etc.).

I can't believe I need to say it's fundamental. But it is. +1
