This tab displays a history of all changes and versions of a File. The list may show two different types of entries: 
Version log entries
These are log entries related to a version change, approval, publishing process or roll-back. These items have a slight darker background color and the actions are displayed in bold text. Each entry is associated with exactly one version. When hovering the entry you can preview or restore that version by making use of the action buttons.
Entries related to changes of a specific version.

For a detailed description of yeager's versioning concept see Versioning.  


  • revert back to an old version of a File
  • preview a specific version of a File

This tab shows the Comments that have been submitted in relation to a specific File.
Comments have one of three stati:

  • OK - The default status of a Comment, usually used for Comments that passed quality control
  • Unapproved - Depending on the specific application built, this status is usually used to hide a Comment until further notice (that is until its status is changed by an administrator to either "OK" or "Spam"). Refer to your system administrator for more detailed information on how your system is set up.
  • Spam - Depending on the specific application built, this status is usually used to permanently hide a Comment. Refer to your system administrator for detailed information on how your system is set up.
