Version Control in Lectora Online

Version Control allows only one person to work on a shared title (or a part of a shared title) at a time. When other team members try to make changes to the title while it is checked out, they will be warned that the title is already in use. This prevents team members from overwriting each other’s changes. Versioning is made possible through the Check Out and Check In process. When you’ve completed your necessary modifications, it’s a good idea to check in your changes so that you can create a version history of the title. When checking in changes, use the Comment field to provide brief descriptions of your changes. The comments you provide are displayed in the Title History window – along with the title’s date and time and name of the title creator – to help you discern between versions. You can restore a title from backed-up versions of the title that you have checked in using the Version Control process. When you restore the title, the restored version becomes the new current version. Additionally, you can restore a previous version to a new title.
