Page Versions

OU Campus has a version control system in place to allow you to revert to previously saved versions of a page. This allows you to revert to a previous version of a page, and to discard any edits that have been made since that version was saved. Every time a page file is sent for approval, a version of that page is saved through the automatic version control system. You can also save a new version without submitting a page for approval by following the steps below.

Save a New Version

  • Open a page to Edit View.
  • Check out the Page.
  • From the Page Actions Toolbar, click the Save Version icon.
  • This will bring up a modal with a box for Version Description. Enter a description to document the version saved.
  • Once finished, click Save Version.

The Versions Screen

The Versions screen of a page is where you go to manage the saved versions of the page. To access the Versions screen for a page:

  • Open a Page in OU Campus.
  • Check out the page.
  • While viewing the checked out page, click the Versions button from the Page Actions Toolbar. This displays the Versions screen.
  • On the Versions screen you will see a list of all saved versions of the page.

Viewing a Previous Version

  • From the Versions screen, a version of the page can be viewed. These views of a page version are provided in a separate browser window or tab.
  • From the Versions screen, hover over the row for the version.
  • While hovering over the row, find View from the options column (far right).
  • From View, select Page.
  • The version of the page is displayed.

Reverting to a Previous Version

The Versions screen includes the ability to revert to a previous version of a page.

  • From the Versions screen, hover over the row for the version.
  • While hovering over the row click Revert from under the options column (far right).
  • A confirmation dialog will display.
  • Click Revert.
  • A success message shows to which version the page was reverted.

Note: Reverting to the Version will not make the page live. It will only be changed to edit view. In order to publish the version, you will need to submit the page for approval.
