Recently we added the revisions feature as an enhancement to Hexawise created test plans. This allows you to easily revert to a previous test plan for whatever reason you wish. We provide a list of each revision and the date and all you have to do is click a button to revert to that version. We also give you the option to copy that plan (in case you want to view that plan, but ​also​ want to ​keep all​ the updates you have made since then).

Now when you are editing a test plan in Hexawise you will see a revisions link on the top of the screen (see image):

revisions-button

Note, revisions are available in editable test plans, the revisions link is not available in uneditable test plans (such as the sample plans). I saved an editable copy of the plan into my private plans.

In the example in this post, I am using the Hexawise sample plan "F) Flight Reservations" which you can view in your own account.

revisions-note

One of the notes in this sample plan says we should also test for whether java is enabled or not. So I added a new paramater for java and included enabled and not-enabled as paramater values.

At a later date, if we wanted to go to a previous version all we have to do is click the revisions link (see top image) and then we get a list of all the revisions:

revisions-action

Mouseover the revision we want to use and we can make a copy of that version or we can revert to the version we desire.

Versions make is very easy to get back to a previous version of your test plan. This has been quite a popular feature addition. I hope you enjoy it. We are constantly seeking to improve based on feedback from our users. If you have comments and suggestions please share them with use.
