Deleting a revision or a draft

You can delete drafts and revisions as follows:

  • Deleting drafts—When you start a new asset, every time you click save, Brightspot creates a new draft. You can delete any draft.
  • Deleting revisions—When you start a new revision, and every time you click save while working on the revision, Brightspot saves a draft of the revision. You can delete any draft of a revision.

The drafts and revisions you can delete appear with a yellow circle in the Revisions widget.
