Your workflow depends how you work. It depends what your tolerances are. Like every workflow has its own tolerance. That's one of the things discussed with clients a lot is you know, what is your tolerance for failure? Meaning, is rewinding everything 24 hours acceptable? Is rewinding everything a week acceptable?

It's not about if you like it or not. But can you survive if you had to work on data that's a week old? Typically the answer is about 24 hours like about a day's worth of work is what people are mostly acceptable, you know borderline acceptable to deal with in most environments.

A lot of our clients are production marketing type clients and things move relatively fast in those environments so a day hurts, but it's it's survivable beyond that. It gets a little weird, if you're doing a big long form project. Chances are you might be able to survive a week worth of edits because most of its decision making.
