My colleagues and I have been
00:00:02
working on a contract agreement
00:00:05
and as you can see right here,
00:00:08
Amory is right now updating it.
00:00:10
Amory is new to Microsoft 365
00:00:12
and by sheer mistakes simply ends
00:00:15
up deleting the whole documents.
00:00:17
He doesn't even realize it and
00:00:20
simply closes that document.
00:00:22
Once Stephen though gets back to
00:00:24
the SharePoint library and decides
00:00:26
to work on said document, well,
00:00:29
everything is saved automatically.
00:00:31
And Stephen ends up with a blank document.
00:00:34
What can he do to save the situation?
00:00:37
You can simply go to the top left of
00:00:40
your screen and this works whether
00:00:43
you are on Excel, PowerPoint,
00:00:45
Word Online or the desktop app.
00:00:47
You simply have to click on the
00:00:50
name of your document
00:00:52
and use the version history. You have
00:00:56
access to several versions of your document.
00:00:59
These versions are being saved automatically.
00:01:03
Right here we can see that 15 minutes ago
00:01:06
Amory modified the document and we can
00:01:08
also see the specific changes he made.
00:01:11
And of course the changes
00:01:13
are he deleted everything we
00:01:14
can choose to restore our document
00:01:16
to that version. It will still be
00:01:19
the same document as in the same file.
00:01:21
It will not create a copy,
00:01:23
it will be saved in the same library.
00:01:27
If you want though to save a copy,
00:01:29
simply left click save a copy.
00:01:33
You could also decide to download
00:01:35
that version by clicking on the
00:01:38
three ellipses and then load.
00:01:41
The version history is not something
00:01:43
you have to activate as a user.
00:01:46
It is already by default available
00:01:49
to all of you out-of-the-box.
00:01:51
And remember, this is available in Word,
00:01:55
Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint.
