Include Formula Change Detail in Model History


Currently the model history process only captures that a line item was edited but it doesn't specify if it was a formula change, applies to, etc... and it doesn't include what the formula is/was.


This came up recently in trying to research what had happened with a formula that had previously been updated and it's otherwise impossible to put together a good timeline of what happened when there is a lot of activity happening. External documentation is great, but it is prone to human error.

  • The way I've gotten around this is to use the APIs to extract the model design, dump it to text (after a bit of automated manipulation) then put it in a source control repository. That way I get a timeline of all changes to the model design.
