It's great that we can click the double-dot on the left of the files timeline so that we can diff between two adjacent updates to a review, but it would be really useful if we could change the endpoints of that diff so, for example, we could diff the original changelist against the most recent.

If there have been a number of incremental updates to a review, I often need to diff the first & last changes to make sure that we have all the updates that we expect.

Ideally I would like to be able to drag the endpoints of the line connecting the version dots (similar to the Timeline View in Perforce) so that I could diff any two versions.

Thanks

Hi Pete,

Thank you for the feedback. There is an existing enhancement request I am adding your information and comments to, regarding the ability to diff changelists. If it becomes implemented, you will be notified by email.

Have a good week!

Hello PeteS

I also hope that this gets implemented.  However, as a workaround, in the browser address bar you may see something like http://swarm/reviews...23456/v2,3.  If you change that to http://swarm/reviews/123456/v1,3 for example, I think that it does what you want (v2015.1).  You just can't do the same with the timeline slider.  I hope that this has been useful.

Cheers
Mark

You can even do something like:-
http://swarm/reviews/123456/v3,1 to get the latest on the lhs of the diff and a previous version on the rhs.
