Are you constantly iterating on your processes and looking for ways to improve your templates? Look no further! Template Versioning is a feature that enables you to create new iterations of your templates and provides historical tracking so you can see the impact of those changes over time. Version control ensures that active or previously active template cannot be modified so you won't have to worry about accidental overrides. It also provides peace of mind if mistakes are made by preserving old versions you can revert back to.
While initial setup for Template Versioning requires a System Administrator, templates can be managed and versioned by any user with access to Template Hub.
