    Asked on March 16, 2016 at 08:18 AM


    I have just completed a complex form and have been saving as I went, testing the form and with PayPal but when I back arrowed from PayPal my form, which was originally called 'Clone of Clone of Fair@Square 2016 Exhibitor Contract' and which I changed to 'Early Bird Fair@Square 2016 Exhibitor Contract' with all the changes, has reverted back to the original 'Clone of Clone...'Form. 

    I don't want to have to create all the changes again. Are you able to help?

    Hi there,

    When I checked the formID of the form, I can see that form still has the name "Clone of Clone of Fair@Square 2016 Exhibitor Contract"; but on the "Revision History", it seems that 80 changes have made on form in one hour.

    Please see it from the below:

    Since there are several changes being recorded in the form revision history for the form, it shows that the form is being saved without any issue. We request you to go through the revision history for each change to look after the changes made so that you can revert it to the correct version.

    I see that there is another form in your account with the title "(NEW) Early Bird Fair@Square 2016 Exhibitor Contract". I'm not sure if you are looking for this JotForm.

    I see that the following screen from this form that looks similar to the changes that you made:

    Hi Kiran

    Yes that screenshot is from a 'print' version of the correct form.

    Thanks for your quick reply but I'm currently recreating the form from the information I recorded in the 'print' version. And have named this new form '(NEW) Early Bird Fair@Square.....'


    thanks anyway
