Viewing workspace activity
Your Postman collections display a changelog for reviewing create, update, and delete events. You can use the changelog to keep track of any updates you and your collaborators make to your private and team collections. The changelog also lets you rollback a collection and restore it to any previous point in time. Postman also tracks activity within teams and accounts.

To review the changelog for a collection in Postman, select the Collections tab in the left sidebar and click the Changelog icon on the right of Postman to see a chronological list of collection activities.
The changelog indicates the date of each update, the user who carried it out, what type of update they performed, and the time the change occurred. The changelog collates consecutive updates on the same session to the same entity for readability.
With a Postman Team, Business, or Enterprise account, you can see generated diffs detailing changes to a collection.
You can access the activity feed from Postman. The activity feed will show information on who added or removed collections, environments, or entities from the workspace as well as members joining and leaving the workspace. You can filter this information directly within the activity feed.
You can also see who is actively working in your workspace at any time. The avatars of members currently active in the workspace will be brightly colored and displayed at the top of your Postman screen.
To access the activity feed in Postman, select the Overview tab and navigate to the Activity section to see the events that have occured within the workspace.
Filtering the activity feed allows you to display the relevant information directly instead of having to scroll through the feed. You can choose to filter by user or by entity (Workspace, API, Collection, Environment).
To reset your search, click Clear filters at the right of the activity feed. You can also refresh the results by clicking Refresh at the right of the activity feed.
Filtering by user will only display the actions the specified user carried out. To filter by user, click User at the top of the activity feed and select the user(s). You can search for a specific user by typing their name in the search field. Once you have selected the user(s), click Apply.

You can review the activity for your own account in Postman. Click your avatar in the top right, and select Profile — the Activity tab will list your events.
With a Postman Team, Business, or Enterprise account, you can use the changelog to restore a collection to a previous point in time. Click Restore under a change to revert the collection to the point immediately after the change was applied. The changelog will update and Postman will display a confirmation message indicating the time the collection has been restored to.
If you accidentally delete a folder, you can recover it by clicking Restore.
You may see a warning on any request tabs you have open that are affected by reverting the collection, for example indicating a conflict or deletion.
Postman will prompt you to resolve any conflicts that may cause you to lose unsaved data.
