Adobe Target Offers - Versioning

Avatar

Level 4

08-12-2021

Description - I maintain a large number of HTML files in the Adobe Target offers library. Most of these offers are nearly identical with a change or two applied each time. Instead of individual files, it would be great to have some sort of versioning, even if only timestamped versions to refer back to, of offers. This would allow me to make changes to a canonical offer version to ensure that a chain of changes is remembered. 

Why is this feature important to you - While this doesn't happen often, I have accidentally overwritten the contents of one offer with another. Luckily, I maintain my own rough versioning system outside of Target and was easily able to rollback my mistake. But I'd love for the versioning system to be built into Target. 

How would you like the feature to work - I would like a list of previously saved version links to populate to the left or right of the HTML offer contents field in the offer creating/editing screen. Clicking one of these links could open a new tab or window with the offer's previously saved contents at that point in time. 

Current Behaviour - The offer only holds its contents, there is no "memory" built in to remember prior versions. If I accidentally override the contents with new incorrect contents and want to quickly revert back, this is not possible. I'd better hope that I have that offer code saved elsewhere to revert back to, otherwise I'm out of luck.
