Understanding Entry Versions | Classic

Contentstack allows users to create multiple entry versions of the content. Entry versioning helps users to view, manage and compare content of the required versions.
By default entry versions are identified with numbers, for each new version (upon entry save) created the version is assigned a number (eg. Version 1, Version 2, and so on).
Let’s learn how you can manage Entry Versions:

Name Entry Versions

Users can assign suitable names to each version, according to their choice for easy identification. (eg. Production, Development).
Learn in detail how to Name Entry Versions.

Note: A version name has a maximum limit of 32 characters. Currently, there is no cap to version history of an entry. That means you can have many versions of an entry. However, you can consider creating versions that you can manage effectively.
