    Implemented. Web PD provides “View Existing Snapshot” button (top right).

    There are a couple things that the Snapshot History view was being used for that didn't make it over into WebPD.

    1. the ability to switch between named snapshots without having to go back to the PC console was nice.
    This saves the user a few clicks and page loads to switch between an old snapshot and a new one.

    2. The ability to view revision history(unnamed snapshots) for the process app or toolkit no longer exists. There isn't any feature in WebPD that would cover the same use case.

    This was very helpful if you made a mistake and wanted to roll back to an older version of the object. If you are a development team that only creates snapshots every week or two then you could lose several days of work if you need to rollback an object to a named snapshot. The revision history allowed you to create a snapshot for any unnamed snapshot in the past. So for this scenario you could go back to the exact time of the bad revision and create a snapshot of the code just before that. Then you could revert objects or create a new track from that snapshot.

    It also allowed you to find out when a bad code change was introduced and see who made the change.
