How to View Form Revision History

Last Update: February 19, 2017

UPDATE: With V4, it's now easier to view your Revision History.

Just click the small clock icon beside All changes saved! to launch the Revision History tool.

Form Revision History makes it possible for you to review older versions of your forms and when necessary, revert your form back to an older version. It is a big time saver. You can now work faster without worrying about messing your forms. If a form is broken simply travel back to a time in which your form worked properly.

How to View Form Revision History

1. Go to My Forms page and select the form you want to view its revisions.

2. Click "More" button

3. Find and Click "Revision History" option

4. On the left side, you will see a list of revisions for your form. 

Browse versions and review form changes by clicking on a version on the left side. The middle frame shows a preview of your form and the right side has a list of changes you have done on that version. Click "Revert to this Version" to bring back the old changes.

Yes, please if you could help me that would be great. What I did was use one of the online employment application templates - which I used the fields but updated the titles, deleted fields, added fields, etc. to make the form fit my needs. Yikes, now the submitted form I receive indicates that it is for a Salon and the fields are not updated -- an example is that I changed references to Emergency contacts and I changed resume submission to uploading health permits and business licenses. The form online looks great but it is very confusing for me when I get the submitted form document.
Not sure how to fix this so I thought I would see what your advice would be on this.

Thank you so much for our guidance. (: Sincerely, Kimberly

The instructions above do not make sense to me. When I click the "More" button, the only options are: Archive, Form, Mark All as Read, Enable (which is greyed out), and Disable. I do notice a button called "Submissions" which is on the save level as the "More" button, but when I click that, I see a few submissions, but there is no option to "Revert to this Version".

JotForm is a joy to use.

I set up our contact form pretty quickly.

However, now that we want to change it I've noticed the lack of versioning.

What I mean is that when I edit the form it gets auto saved which means our production (public) form is incomplete until I finish the modifications.

What I'd rather have is versioning, meaning that once I'm done with modifications I'll click a "Publish" button which will mark the version as 2 (if that's the 2nd time the form is made public) and only then will replace the current form publically.

This would also make going back to an earlier version of the form very easy.

Right now this can only be achieved by duplicating the form every time one wants to change it.
