Form fields are missing after error popups when saving form

    I've been working on a form for may days now. It's been saved many times. I even made 2 test submissions to it.

    I was just putting the final touches on the form and clicked save and got an error message. Now the form is empty. NONE of the work I did is there and I can no longer even access the 2 test submissions that I created before. I even tried to access it from a different browser and that didn't work.

    Is there a backup of the form I can use. Will access "magically" appear for me if I wait an hour or so? Please help.

    The form title I'm working on is: "Family Shabbaton Retreat May 2014".

    Thank you,

    Hi Mike,

    Please try to check your form revision history. This guide: Introducing-Form-Revisions-Never-Lose-Your-Work-Again-. You should be able to see all the revisions made to your form, check for the recent updates you've made and then click "Revert to this version". You should be able to retrieve the whole form and the submissions.

    Please update us here for the results.

    Thanks for the response. I checked my revision history. In it I can see where the latest version is blank and the versions before it are not.

    HOWEVER, when I choose one to revert to, and it confirms that the reversion has been applied (by displaying "revert completed," it STILL doesn't show up when I go to my forms and try to edit/open the form. It's still completely blank.

    I do like the POSSIBILITY of restoring from our revision history, but it's not working for me in this case. I would like to "revert" to the version of the form created at 2:21pm yesterday (March 25).

    I even tried this in both Chrome and Firefox (latest versions for Windows) and get the same results. Is there a "cache" somewhere that I need to clear? How do I do it? Thanks!

    It is probably that the form was not properly saved into the database, so that you received a corrupted blank version. I was able to revert your form back to the 11:21PM, March 25th version:

    I hope it helps. If you need any further assistance, please let us know. Thank you.
