Restore previous version of SP document

Hi Folks, 

 

I'm hoping for some postive news on this one.  I incorrectly updated a multi-choice field on ~2600 documents in a SharePoint library with a flow I created that was supposed to just populate some new fields recently added.  The library is version controlled.  Our IT department does not back up the library, so they can't do a full library restore (my ideal choice).  It appears my only options are to manually update the multi-choice field on all 2600 documents using the data I saved in a spreadsheet, or manually restoring each document back to an earlier version. 

 

I obviousl would prefer not to have to physically 'touch' each document to correct it, so I'm hoping there are some options with flow.  I've done some Googling, and didn't see anything that indicated I could kick off a restore to a prior version.  Has anyone done this?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks, 

Tom

Re: Restore previous version of SP document

Hi @tsyrell ,

As you said, you have updated the file's properties incorrectly.

You want to get the previous version to restore the date.

I am afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Thanks for the response.  I was hoping that wasn't the case, but expected it to be.
