Sites “version history” returns!

Posted on: November 10, 2021

As I was updating a Google Site for one of my courses, I discovered that the version history function had returned. I wondered if there was an announcement that I missed and I found this article.

The function is not obvious. On any site page, you have to:

  1. Get into editing mode
  2. Click on the three-dot menu
  3. Select “version history”  

The list of page changes might take a moment to load depending on how extensive your Site revisions are. You can then travel back in time if necessary.

The version history function was removed when Google forced the move from Classic Sites to the now current version. I am glad that it is back because this allows for truly collaborative sharing and editing of Site pages. If anything goes wrong, an administrator can roll back changes to the last good state.
