The Describe Change text box captures a brief description of what you changed. This is particularly useful when multiple users are editing a site. The Versions page lists all versions of a page and the change description for each version. The "Recent Changes" page also lists change descriptions entered for edited pages, as do the automated Change Notification emails sent from the site.
The change description box is initially populated with a simple description of what has changed. For example, if the content or title is changed, it will include "Title changed" or "Content updated". If a page property is changed, it will indicate which property was changed. Of course, this value can still be edited on the Content tab.
Click the "Minor Edit" checkbox to indicate that this edit does not represent a substantial change. Users can choose not to receive minor edit notifications in their change alert emails, and by default, minor edits are not listed on the Recent Changes page. The exact text "(minor edit)" must appear in the change description for an edit to be considered minor. This text can be before or after other text in the change description.
