Improve your teamwork with Tiptap's new Collaboration History.

The Collaboration History feature acts as a time machine for your projects. It logs changes, additions, and deletions made by every collaborator. The essence of teamwork is captured and stored, allowing backtracking to any snapshot of your document's timeline.

The technical benefits of Collaboration History include

  1. Detailed Versioning: Changes are logged automatically every minute, or manually at any time, with a timestamp, and a snapshot of the document's state. This granular level of detail facilitates precise tracking and auditing.
  2. Real-Time Synchronization: The Collaboration History is updated in real-time, ensuring that all team members have access to the latest version of the project, along with its entire history, at any given moment.
  3. Revert Functionality: A revert functionality allows for instant rollback to any previous version of the document, aiding in swift error rectification and decision reversals.
  4. API Extensibility: The extension comes with a well-documented API, allowing for seamless integration with existing systems and further customization to meet unique project requirements.

Getting Started

​To get started, install the extension from our private registry using npm install @tiptap-pro/extension-collaboration-history @hocuspocus/transformer. This extension relies on our Tiptap Collab cloud service and requires a valid subscription to an eligible plan.
