Edit and Undo Options for a Published Article

We changed the user experience/user interface slightly so editing articles become easy. In the previous versions, the user need to explicitly fork a published version before editing the document. But with the new version there is an Edit button which automatically forks the article behind the scene and it also provides undo/cancel option if in case you clicked the edit by accidentally. This vastly improves the editing experience.

The “Edit” Option allows the users to fork the content of the published version of articles for which do not have write access to until now.

Alternatively, if the users choose whether not to fork the edited article version, can disable this with “Undo” function, or instead can delete this article version in the version history.

DELETE the Article Versions

As users would consider that certain article versions are not of much significance anymore and would make sure to remove these permanently to avoid clutter in the documentation of articles in the knowledge base. So, we have facilitated users to remove the draft versions that are redundant or no longer using at ease with “Delete” feature in Document360.

Personalization with Author’s Profile Picture

We made some subtle changes to the user interface to display the author profile picture wherever possible. For Example, in the below screen shot you can notice the profile picture is displayed on each revision of the article, giving the visual clue who performed that operation.
