How to Use the Change Log Module

Settings

  • Show changes
    In the module, you have the possibility to show all changed pages, only pages with editor comments, or only pages with comments that have been marked as important.
  • Show columns
    Select which information to show in the document. Please find examples of this below.
  • Number of lines to show
    Adjust the number according to the number of lines you would like to show in the Change Log. Note that this is also how to control overflow on a page. If you have a very long Change log module creating overflow on a page, you can reduce the lines to show and apply the module again on the next page and it will continue with the list of changes. 

Example

This is an example of how the Change Log can look.
