Much of your time as an admin may be spent reverting changes made to an article page. You may be used to the undo feature where you can undo the last edit to the article. As an admin, you additionally have a rollback feature to expedite the process. Where the undo feature lets you undo one edit, the rollback feature lets you undo all the consecutive edits made by an editor in a single article. This is handy, for example, if a user posts eight edits to an article and you want to revert all eight edits. Simply hit rollback and all eight edits will be undone.
Use of rollback by admins is subject to the rollback guideline which among other things, explains when rollback can be used and when it cannot. Misuse of rollback may lead to the removal of administrator privileges.
