Version History: Previous Decision

I've had a look in previous ideas for this suggestion but can't find one - if there is one, please link me up so I can promote it. In the Version History box of a revision, it would be great if the Previous Decision could be shown along with the ID, Title, submisison date and Decision Letter.  It surely wouldn't take much to add it in and it would save a lot of fiddling about. This is just a simple thing, but one that would make a big difference as I know a lot of people build checks for it into their routines and liek to add a note. That small amount of time and back & forth between pages adds up to a lot, and it seems unnecessary. I realise you may have to expand the whole panel to accommodate this and that could prove problematic, but I think this change would be well worth it and be of great relief to a lot of people.

    Hear, hear! It's so annoying to have to swap between versions of a manuscript in order to see this, especially if the system is being slow and taking a while to refresh. In some of my journals I've added the decision category into the Decision Letter subject, as it's slightly easier to open that and check the decision instead of swapping to the previous version. But it would be even better to just have it displayed right there on the screen! Seems a little thing, but when you're doing it for hundreds of manuscripts the time it takes mounts up alarmingly....
