Include Formula Change Detail in Model History

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.
