Working With the Member History View
By default, the member history view displays two panels: a panel showing the path of development, and a panel showing details for a selected revision. In order for information to display in the details panel, you must select a checkpoint in the GUI or click a checkpoint number in the Revision column in the Web interface.
In the GUI, you can toggle between a graphical view and a list view by clicking View > List or View > Graphical.
Graphical Member History view
The information in the graphical view shows the path of development from revision to revision, including branches and merge lines.
In the graphical view, some revision IDs may be truncated to improve readability and visual layout. To show full revision IDs, select View > Show Full Revision IDs.
You can change the information that displays beside each graphical revision by selecting View > Show beside each node. If summary information is not displayed in the view, it displays in a tooltip when you place your mouse pointer on a specific revision. The available selections are:

In the GUI, some fields may contain lists too long to display by default. Click More to display the complete list.

Checkpoint Label(s)
Labels of checkpoints in which the selected revision participated, including date and time information.
Member Revision
The project and development path that the revision is the member revision in.
If a revision is member revision in a shared subproject, only the original project path is displayed. Any projects where the subproject was added as shared are not displayed.
Only projects that you have the OpenProject permission for display.
The maximum number of projects displayed is controlled by the server limit, which is set at 5000 by default. Administrators can change the default limit. If the number of projects exceeds the set limit, Windchill RV&S displays a message indicating that there are too many results to display in the view.
Filtering the Member History View
You can use the revision filter in the GUI to display any revisions of the selected member that meet specified selection criteria. You can change the filter by selecting View > Change Filter.
