Google Sheets version history is a part of Google Workspace that lets you view and revert to previous spreadsheet versions. It's useful for tracking changes, understanding document evolution, and recovering lost data.
Follow the steps below to see edit history in Google Sheets.
Go to the top menu of your Google Sheets document and click on 'File'.
Inside the 'File' menu, select 'Version history', and then click on 'See version history'. This action opens a sidebar on the right, showing different versions of your document.
The sidebar displays a list of saved versions with their dates and times. Click on any version to view the changes made during that edit.
Changes are usually highlighted for clarity.
To revert to a previous version, click the three-dot menu next to it and select 'Restore this version'.
After you're done, close the version history by clicking the back arrow at the top of the panel or the clicking outside the panel.
