    Recover auto-saved form???

    Asked by Jbarfelz on January 28, 2016 at 01:12 AM


    I have been working on a very complex form for several hours. As I made changes the form auto-saved, and I clicked on Save periodically just for good measure. I accidentally clicked on a link that took me off of the form (I went to Jotform support), click the Back button on my browser, and ALL of the changes from the past several hours are now gone! How can I retrieve the hours of work? Why did clicking the Back button undo all of my work vs reloading the most recent autosave?

    Thank you, and PLEASE HELP!!!

    Are you referring to your JotForm titled "Affair Recovery Map"? I see that there are few pages in your form along with some videos. If you are not seeing the changes made on your form, please check if the changes made are reflecting in the Form Revision history. You may revert to the last working version of the form from the Form revision history.

    Hope this information helps!

    YES! Thank you very much! I was able to restore the form and save hours of redoing complex conditional logic. :D
