The Timeline is a feature in the Contributor Editor that provides an interface for snapshot comparison. Available snapshots are shown in a timeline from which you choose the two snapshots to be compared. Orange vertical change bars show which sections that have been changed in the latest selected snapshot version. To be able to access this feature, you have to be a reviewer or higher, see User Types.
