How to Restore to Previous Version History for SharePoint Integrated Form (Edited in PowerApps)

Hello all,

 

I have a SharePoint list that has a form on it (edited in PowerApps) but is not a "stand alone" Power App. Long story short, I need to restore to a previous version history. When in the SharePoint list, I can click "New" and then "Edit in PowerApps" to get to the normal PowerApps editing screen. From there, I can even go and look at version history and see which version is live. I cannot (at least to my knowledge) change the version history from this screen:

And then I get to this screen:

prError2.PNG

 

I don't see any way of selecting the previous version to restore to that version. Is this seriously only possible for "stand alone" PowerApps? I have a hard time believing we would track the Version History if we can't even revert back to the previous versions.

In both the screenshot provided by the original poster, and in my form there is no ellipses to click on to allow you to restore.

You need to scroll all the way to the bottom of your version history, and you can select "See more options for version management". They didn't make it easy to find...

I couldn't even find that link in my form lol.

I ended up making a new form, making changes, clicking that "See more options for version management" and modifying it to take me to the correct page for my original app.

If you want to restore the previous versions for an SharePoint form integrated with PowerApps, please go the library/list setting and go to form settings and then click on see versions and usage from there you will be redirected to the PowerApps screen where it shows all the previous versions

 

 

List/Library --> Setting --> Form Settings --> See Versions and Usage

I also ran into the same issue as @HD3. There is no option for me to Restore or "See more options for version management" from clicking "App version history" in the Power Apps.

 

1. Clicking "App version history"

2. Version history page doesn't allow any actions at all. There are no ellipses to access the version control functionality.

After struggling for hours, I finally found a way to restore previous versions of the Customize Form. Here is what I found:

 

1. In your SharePoint List, go to "Integrate" > "Power Apps" > "Customize forms" to open the custom form in Power Apps

2. Click "Share" (I know sharing has nothing to do with version control, but it will take you where you can access and restore previous versions)

3. After clicking "Share", you will land on this page. You can disregard the Share dialogue box and click on "Versions" tab in the background.

4. You now can access all the versions recorded with the option to restore and publish whichever version you like.

Hope this help whoever is in need!

Huge time saver - thank you for posting this!

@worapol_s,  man... What a ridiculous oversight by MS Dev. I love to hate PowerApps. It will be an incredibly tool for people like me but let's face it, it still has a very long way to go. So outrageously buggy at times.

 

Thanks heaps for this workaround. Life saver 🤘

Oh. My. Gosh. Thank you so much.
