Revisions widget

After you save the first draft of an asset, Brightspot displays the Revisions widget in the content edit page. This widget lists all drafts, the currently live version, revisions that are not yet published, and previously published revisions. For each version, the Revisions widget lists the time it was saved and the user who saved it. The following illustration provides some examples of entries in the Revisions widget.
