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 table describes the Revisions widget's sections.




Version status of the asset:

  • Live for a published revision.

  • Draft for an unpublished asset. If a draft is associated with a workflow, then the workflow state is displayed, such as Pending Review or Approved.


Revisions with a future publication date. (For information about scheduling assets for publication, see Scheduled publishing.) When the publication time arrives—

  • The revision becomes the first one listed in the Revisions widget (listed as Live).

  • The revision no longer appears under Scheduled.

In Progress

Revisions that are not yet published. A revision is identified by its creation time stamp and, if available, its name.
