Accessing the Drop-in, Note and Change History reports
To access the reports, open the Alerts & Updates box on My Page, and click the View History button for the report you want to view.
Even if there are no new alerts, you can always view the history of Drop-ins, Notes, and data changes that you’ve chosen to be notified about.
The drop-in report shows all forthcoming titles that publishers have flagged as being added late to a season.
You can export the data as an Excel or CSV file.
Notes History Report
The Notes History report shows all recent notes.
You can change the type of note displayed (your own notes or shared notes) and click through on an ISBN to view the whole note on the title detail page.
Change History Report
The Change History report shows a report of forthcoming title data changes you've chosen to track for the last year.
You can toggle your display of the change types and filter your report to just the titles that you are interested in: all titles, only your own account’s titles (for publisher accounts), or titles by publishers you added to your favourites list (see how to set up your favourite publishers and imprints).
You can sort the report by clicking on any column header, or download your report to an Excel file if you’d like to do more advanced sorting and filtering.
If you haven't yet signed up for data change notifications, click the Manage Alerts button in the Updates & Alerts box. This takes you to your personal settings, where you can choose the data elements you want to track.

Head back to My Page, and from the Updates & Alerts box click the View History button next to the changes count statement to view a report of forthcoming title data changes for the previous 12 months for the data points you've chosen to track.
