I have written a flow that worked, then was modified to add additional functionality, then doesn't work. Trying to revert to the way it was when it worked hasn't worked. The flow will take an unreasonable amount of time to re-write.
Is there a way to access previous versions of a flow (restore a flow to version 1 from version 34, etc...)?
Did you export the version of the flow you want to restore before modifying it?
If so, you can import it again
Hope this helps
No. I don't export a flow after every change I make because some are very minor. My challenge is that some changes that seem benign corrupt the entire flow and it is impossible to recover without version history.
I see your point, I also experienced similar problems with complex flows, and it is really frustrating when you find no way but building them again from scratch... the only way I found to avoid is was to export flows everytime I made a change, even if it was minor, and keep a manual record of each change introduced... a procedure that I must confess it is the opposite to automation.
Sorry I cannot help, let's hope somebody else can describe any other feasible way to get back your flow!
Hi @JustPlainCarpe ,
Currently, Flow does not have such a feature. If you want such a feature to be supported by MS Flow, please try to submit your suggestion in the idea forums. I believe this is a feature worth looking forward to.
In addition, I think that the method provided by @efialttes is also worth considering. It is used to export the configuration of the Flow completed in different time periods, so that the previous version can be used according to the date or other records.
Another way you might use is to use Save as to generate a copy, also do some record. If you need to use it, you could edit it directly on the basis of the copy.
Hope it helps.
