Today’s post is a quick tip to help content editors. In a lot of companies, content approval is an important part of meeting compliance. In order for a content approver to be able to see approved content changes they have to be able to see the differences between the current version and the old one. Surprisingly I get asked this question a lot from different companies and to be fair, seeing the differences between blocks is hidden and enabling it is definitely not very intuitive.
Workflow is being looked at and should be updated to version 10. ‘Projects’ is another approach I recommend you take a look at. However, if you want to do a very simple comparison between block version as follows:
In the block that you want to inspect, click ‘Edit’
Expand the left-hand side ‘Asset Panel’, click the ‘Settings’ button at the top, and select ‘Add Gadgets’
From here, open the ‘CMS’ tab and select ‘Versions’
In the bottom panel of the ‘Assets’ toolbar, you should now see a complete version history for the block.
