Version history

The current or active version of a process is always visible in the right-hand pane, for example V0.8 for the process as shown below.

Process versionProcess version history

The first version of a process is 0.1 and will increment to 0.2 and so on, each time a process is saved. Once the process is published the version changes to 1.0 and increments with each publication. This makes it is easy to keep track of who made changes and when, and to restore an older version if needed.

The video below introduces version control and the section How to get started runs through how to view process versions and restore an older version.
