  • There have been 233 changes in the last 24 hours.

  • The timeline has four divisions.

Change history filters

The Change History has records only for an object and its tracked entities, not all entities belonging to the object. You can use filters to view changes to specific objects, the types of changes, and the users how made those changes if they are tracked.

In this example, instead of selecting View All Changes, you can select specific objects, such as only properties, processes, property sheets, process steps, and process dependencies that have been modified by the Project:Default and Admin users.

This list does not show all users. Use the up and down arrows to see all four of the users.

Click the down arrow to see the other users.
