It is often difficult to see if changes have been added to new versions of your files.

With the version compare feature, you can open two versions of the same file to have a side-by-side comparison view. You can see exactly which changes have been made on one screen and leave additional feedback.

How to compare versions of your files

  1. Open the file you are going to work with.

  2. Click the Compare button on the top of the screen. By default, the system will open the two most recent versions.

  3. If you would like to choose another version to compare, you can choose it from the version menu on the top bar.

  4. To exit the compare versions mode, click the arrow on the upper left corner of your screen.

How to hide comments when comparing versions

  1. Click the hide comments button of the comment section you would like to hide. The comments section will collapse on the side of your screen depending on which version’s comments you want to hide.

  2. You can reopen each section by clicking the comments button again.

Leave feedback in the compare view

You don't need to leave the compare view to give your feedback. Just like in the normal file view, you can leave feedback directly in the compare view:

and more.

You can compare documents and images, but we'll be adding more file formats soon. Check out the Supported file formats article to know which files are supported in each category. We will keep you posted as we continue to add more file types to this feature!
