You should have the field and the link included in your views

The steps are as follow:

  • Using the dropdown arrow to the right of the Fields section of your view, select "Rearrange"
  • Move the history link field above your field that you want to link and save
  • Make sure your history link field no longer has the link box checked off, because we're going to use a different link box.
  • Click on the field to pull up the settings, select the Rewrite options. Select the link option under the rewrite options. This will show you a text box where you can use fields that appear above the title field in your rearranged list of fields in a link to add to the title field. In this box you should put your history link, using [history_link_machine_name] for the field.

  • If you mean revisions then Use the track_field_changes module, it enables you side by side history of your field in views – Shabir A. Oct 29 '15 at 12:46
