Change History

Introduction

The change history tab displays the history of scheduling changes for that task. Changes that affect the start date, end date, and duration of the task are logged. It does not matter if the change was made in the Gantt module, elsewhere in BitPicture, or in Jira/Trello.

You can also open the panel directly from the task details view.

  1. Click on a task on the Gantt timeline.

  2. Click "See changes".
