Applied Parameters: None

Summary

In conjunction with your connected Workspace, the software facilitates the notion of Project History. A dedicated Project History view provides a progressive timeline of major events relating to the project, including its creation, commits, releases, clones, and MCAD exchanges, alongside various other actions.

Access

This command can be accessed by:

  • Right-clicking on a managed project entry in the Projects panel, then choosing the History & Version Control » Show Project History command from the context menu.
  • Selecting the History & Version Control » Show Project History command from the Projects main menu if you contain a managed project.
This feature is only made available, provided the Project History extension is installed as part of your Altium Designer installation. This extension is installed by default when installing the software, but in case of inadvertent uninstall, can be found back on the Purchased tab of the Extensions & Updates page (click on the current user control (e.g. ) at the top-right of the main application window, then choose Extensions and Updates from the associated menu).
To access Project History directly in the Workspace browser interface, open a project from the Projects Management page (Projects) and select the History option from the side menu.

Use

The graphical-based interactive timeline presents the project's history as a series of chronological event-based versions, which depending on the type of event, can be viewed, reverted to, or the data accessed. The full capabilities of the Project History timeline are available for server projects under the Workspace's native (internal) Git version control.
