Our Plumsail Forms app allows you to create customized SharePoint forms, which are responsive and work well with Modern UI.

1

When customizing a form, you might apply save changes to the form which are hard to undo. For example, you delete a field, or break your JavaScript and want to go back to a previous version.

2

How can this be done? It’s very simple, you can go to Site Pages -> PlumsailForms, find the specific form you were working with and open its version history. The file names have the following structure: {ListName}_{ContentTypeName}_{FormType}.xfds

3

Reset its version to the one that you want to bring back. Then, open the form in the editor and save it.

4

Same is true if you Reset the form by accident. You can go to Recycle bin, find the form and restore it. Then re-save it in the editor, so it’s applied again.
