Introducing the Changelog Block

The changelog block is a simple way to visualize a collection of items with corresponding custom “tags” which can be modified as the items also change their state.

Together with the recently announced task block, the changelog block joins the P2 product management block family. If you are not familiar with a changelog, it is a log or record of all notable changes made to a project.

At Automattic we use the changelog block to summarize the work status for a team or product. But P2’s changelog block can really be used for any projects that you want to keep a record of.

Here’s what editing in the changelog looks like.

Pro-tips

If you edit your changelog in the back-end and you want to pick a color for a custom field, when you click on the field a color picker will open up.

Also if you open the Advanced Tab you can create an HTML Anchor. This would allow the viewer of your changelog block to click on a word and jump to the section of the page where you can offer more information.
