The CodeSignal Product and Engineering teams have been hard at work ringing in the new year with some exciting enhancements to both the candidate and customer experiences. For January, we're highlighting two highly-requested improvements:
- Restore code to a previous state within assessments
- Zoom in to easily navigate long Interview replay timelines
Restore code to a previous state within assessments
Engineers frequently revert their code to a previous state when problem-solving on the job. Now, candidates can do the same, restoring and comparing their code to a previous state based on their submission history.
Candidates can take advantage of this feature by clicking on the new "History" tab in the left panel of the IDE. See a list of previous code states in the "Code History" panel, and use the icons on the left or right side of each state listing to diff or restore the code state.

Zoom in to easily navigate long Interview replay timelines
We've added zoom functionality to replays, allowing client users to more easily navigate long replay timelines.
Scrubbing through lengthy timelines can introduce friction into the candidate evaluation process. For example, interview sessions can stretch over multiple days, and it can be challenging to spot the periods of activity in a timeline. Now, with the ability to zoom, it's easier to identify and navigate to important sections in the replay. Zoom is available across any replay content for all client users.
