Multy body , Parametric design and revision control

guy_rogelguy_rogel Member Posts: 25 PRO
As most of us I think , I use onshape as a multy body design approach. so I design my product which is made from many parts in the design studio. surly I use parametric design so when a change is being made it may affect many bodies.
So imagine I have made a design of a product. all good saved the last revision and manufactured. 2 years later (or 2 days in my case) I forget all about this project and how it was build. Now if I need to make some change in one part I don't know if this change has affected other bodies or not. I know I can see that changes done between 2 revisions but this list may be long and not always clear , But I am looking for an automatic tool that can tell me for sure if the geometry of a body was changed between 2 saved revisions. that what once a modification is complete I know for sure which parts need to get a new revision and to be released,
Does OS have a tool like that ?
I know I can make an assembly with the old and new body and start looking for changes....but I am looking for an automatic tool 
Does this question make any sense ?

    Makes perfect sense. There is a built in compare facility that will show you both graphically and via the feature list what is different between two versions.

    thanks owe
    So i had a look at the compare tool. 
    Yes its a good tool to uderstand changes.
    But i am looking for something more quick basic.
    I would love to have a quick table showing me which bodies are the same and which bodies changed geometry between 2 versions. 
    I think having this information quick and easy is priceless
