My team uses the revision history function a lot when editing records. Currently, that function is not available in an Interface, as far as I can tell. I hope that it can be added ASAP.

I have a workaround that embeds a link to the record in the base, and directs the team member to click on the link and open up the Activity pane to see the track changes. This is a workable solution, but far from an ideal one, as it requires the team member to interact with the base itself rather than the much more streamlined—and much less confusing—Interface.

🙂 I also would love some ability to surface Revision History in Interfaces.

I suppose this is a little more complex than simply surfacing the complete Revision History in Interfaces since some users of the Interface might not be meant to see all the data exposed in the Revision History (like the names of other users, the Field Names and Field Values for Fields that may be hidden from the Interface itself, etc.). So maybe what we're really after is a filtered Revision History which specifically contains edits made to Fields that are visible in that Interface.

@bult0023 really? Could you share some where you found it, as I haven't seen in on my airtable yet?

In the newest version of the interface designer you can enable Revision History right below the toggle for comments within the record detail page

oh wow thanks for sharing that, I had to create a new layout as my old one is now "legacy" and doesn't have the option you showed. After creating a new layout I was able to enable Revision History 🎉
