Tracking Changes

K helps you catalog and identify changes to data items through automated change detection. On each data profile page you can click on the Changes tab to view a timeline of changes detected.

Automated Change Detection

When data and content items change in structure (such as a column being added to a Table or a sheet being added to a Report), K will catalog the change and notify impacted users automatically.

These changes are added to the related data profile page Changes tab under Detected changes

For each change that is detected, you can click in the Note section and add details about the change to help other users understand the context of the change.
