The new Version Control feature allows editors to effortlessly view and restore all previous versions of any work instruction.

31 May 2019

Version Control will go live on Monday, June 3rd. Version Control is offered as an add-on to our Enterprise subscription, and comes standard with Enterprise Plus. So what’s new? Our Co-Founder and Chief of Instructional Design, Daan Assen explains in the video below.





Multiple versions.

Before, only one version of a guide could exist in any of the available states: Draft, Published, or Archived. Now, multiple versions of the same guide can exist at the same time. We make it easy to see the full version history of any guide.



Always live.

Never lose the functionality of your work instructions. Version control allows users to keep a current, live version of their instructions while simultaneously making edits and changes. These changes will go live with the push of the ‘publish’  button 


Simple reactivation.

Need to revert back to an older version of a guide? We’ve got you covered. With the push of a button, unpublish your current version and replace it with any previously created version. If you’d like, you can also publish straight from any older version.


User-friendly interface.

Use an intuitive drop-down UI to navigate through your published and unpublished versions.


Compliance friendly.

Version Control allows administrators to see a comprehensive overview of every version in their system. Not only can you see the contents of these versions, but you’ll see which version was in use, and when. 

Need to know exactly which instructions were in place at the time of an incident? No problem.


Bookmark versions.

Want to share a version of a work instruction with your teammates? Easy. Simply copy the link to whichever version you’d like to share.
