Lightroom Classic: Develop Module, Left Panel File History

I often find myself needing to develop files for a specific purpose and this may require working on files over a period of days / weeks. It can become difficult to remember which files / folders, im working on and in, and would really benefit from having a File History section within the left hand panel on the Develop module. I know there is a 'history' section for the individual files regarding the actions taken against that individual file but i am referring to having a file history section to identify the specific files that you have been working on. Ideally the option for the user to define how long a history they wish to keep i.e. day/week/month or indefinitely.  There would need to be minor admin features to the list in that the list itself would need to be links to the files themselves making it easy to revert back to the file to continue editing plus the obvious things like pruning the list if required and pruning from the list where the links are no longer valid, in that the source file referenced has since been deleted. I realise this may not be high on the function list but i would appreciate it being considered, especially as i don't think it would require extensive coding (relatively speaking !).

Surely you are aware of keywords. Just give your project photos a keyword and then click on it to reopen those photos in the library module.

Surely I am, but i am proposing something that looks at solving a workflow performance problem in a better way.

I gave you a useful comment and you responded with nonsense. If you want to be respected then act like you deserve it and don't insult the rest of us with meaningless suggestions.

I support David's suggestion - this would be a useful addition to the workflow.  As a workaround what about using the smart collection with "edit date" in last 10 days with "Has edit" = true??

Create smart collections based on the Edit Date. You can define them however you want, and view them in Library or Develop or elsewhere (via the filmstrip).
