Multimedia Version History

Access this dialog by selecting the version history option from the Metadata & Security icon in multimedia reports, including My Multimedia Files. The Multimedia Version History dialog lists available versions of single multimedia files, if more than one version exists. Note that CommonSpot can maintain version history for single files only, not for multimedia playlists.

Also note that special conditions apply to multimedia files versioned on external servers. See "Notes on Uploading, Importing, Updating, and Deleting Multimedia Files" in Multimedia Services in the Administrator's Reference.

The Version column displays the creation date for each version.

Icons in the second column identify these multimedia types:
