Hello @wat2win 

I have a team plan, which is to give access to 1 Year of revision history.

I'm also a bit confused after checking these same things on my side. 

I've checked 2 tables and both of them have data copied/imported from csv and Excel files.

I also remember that airtable always mentions the input method(api, form, pasted, added by the user, etc) of data.

See this image, Check the created date and then there is nothing on All Activity.


Now see this another image. Here everything is properly mentioned.


Can someone please elaborate more, Is it an issue or just any misunderstanding?

Unfortunately, Airtable erases 100% of the revision history if you duplicate a base or restore a base from a snapshot. It is very unfortunate. Airtable also changes the record ID’s in duplicated or restored bases, which is also highly unfortunate.

p.s. If you’d like to hire an expert Airtable consultant, please feel free to contact me through my website: Airtable consultant — ScottWorld 

I am also having the same issue.  And this started to happen in November.  I noticed the plans (which we pay for)... changed names around that time.  Did they also restrict history???  

Any change I make current (not even past records) are bring recorded.  Only comments are.

Did you ever find a resolution for this?  We are having the same issue.    And these aren't even old records.  I can create one today.. and any field I change (it use to be in my acitivty history) is not showing up.  Only comments.




Are you viewing all activity or just comments?

All activity.  And it only shows comments.  If I change the record... it used to 'record' it in the activity.  And I created a new record .. to ensure this wasn't because it was an old record. 

Same issue as the images sent in the above thread by dilipborad .
