HoneyBook makes record-keeping easy: if you ever need to go back and view a previous version of a sent smart file, you can do just that.

PLEASE NOTE: This tool is available only for smart files that have been sent and edited in a project. Smart templates do not have version history.

This article references smart files, our newest file experience offering more power and customization than ever. Click here to learn more about smart files and add them to your account!

To access a previous version of a sent smart file:

1. Find the smart file in question and click to open. You can search using the search bar, or locate the file from within the project’s Activity or Files tabs.

2. From the top navigation bar, click [Number of] Versions.

3. You’ll be brought to the most recently-shared version of the file, with a detailed version history in the right-side toolbar.

  • HoneyBook Tip: In addition to previous versions that were shared with clients, you’ll also see any active draft versions of the file–perfect for if you or your teammate start working on a draft, then need to come back to it at a later time.

4. From the right-side toolbar, select the version of the file you’d like to view.

The version of your smart file will open, where you can edit if it's a draft, or review the content and export pages as PDFs if it was previously shared with the project participants!
