As part of our continual development of popcorn, we are very excited to introduce an important new feature: we’re bringing a Changes Timeline to our email editor.

The email editor now displays 3 different actions:
Undo and Redo arrows that offer the classic pattern to move back and forth between changes.
A history icon that expands a timeline of the latest changes:

Changes Timeline

The timeline allows the user to browse through the most recent changes.

All the steps display:

  • An icon to identify the content element type (an image, text, etc.)
  • A description of what changed, giving the new property value (if any)
  • The exact time it happened
All these details provide enough information for users to understand what modification was applied, and, if desired, rewind the message to that state:

When the user selects a previous step, the content or row that triggered the history record displays as the selected item, providing further context.
The timeline for more recent changes is still available, allowing the user to move forward without losing any changes:

The Undo widget currently displays the last 15 edits in the timeline, but users can always rewind to the Message opened state to undo all changes since the message was initially opened in the editor.

We are also doing additional testing to see if the number of recent edits can be increased beyond 15 without negatively impacting the browser’s performance. We will update this section if the number is increased.

The last saved edits are only available at the session level, so they reset every time the editor is loaded. If you need to provide a complete message history, you can build a custom one based on the on Save and on Change events (see below).
