View guide edit history

Note: Guide edit history is only available for Pendo subscriptions with Guides Pro included in their package. If you're unsure whether your plan includes this or if you're interested in getting access, contact your Pendo account representative.

Guide edit history helps you track and understand changes made to your guides by your team. It records who modified the guides and when. In addition, you can maintain records of the updates because all content changes are logged, ensuring transparency and accuracy of information. This feature ensures you can quickly identify and address any changes with your users.

The edit history:

  • Surfaces step-level visual differences across edit sessions.
  • Surfaces guide-level and step-level non-visual changes.
  • Recreates the guide with the before and after looks based on the changes made throughout the guide history.

  2. Select a guide from the guide’s list in the Overview tab.
  3. In the guide's details page, select the ellipses (...) in the top-right corner and then select View edit history from the dropdown menu.

The guide edit history page shows the high-level changes made to the guide, and any changes made to individual steps in the guide.

In the Revisions list, the guide revisions are grouped by date, with the most recent at the top and the oldest revision at the bottom. You can see which user made the changes and when, and the status of the guide when the change was made.

View step revisions

If changes were made to any steps in the guide, you can see what those changes were under the relevant step. Only steps where changes were made are shown here.

Select the arrow in the right-side of any step to expand it to see the revision details for the selected step compared to the version immediately before it. In the Visual changes section, you can see the visual changes to the step. In the Other changes section, you can see more detailed changes made to the step.
