Changes to a form somehow lost. Are revisions stored?

  1. Hi, I logged in to one of my sites today and found that one of my forms had been replaced by an older version. I have no idea how this could have happened. My only guess is that an older browser tab was open to the form editor page and somehow I clicked Update on that form page. I don't remember doing that so I'm pretty baffled. Either way I'm wondering if Gravity Forms stores revisions of Forms like other post types. If so, how can I restore the form to the completed version? If not, can you add this as a wishlist? Considering the mission critical nature of these forms there ought to be some sort of revision system in my place (in my opinion).

    We do not store form revisions. I will move this to our feature requests though. All my best!

  3. If you have MySQL backups of your WordPress database, you will have prior versions of the forms stored in the database. I acknowledge that is not the same as revision history, but if you have lost a form, you should be able to recover it from your MySQL backup.

  4. Thanks Chris,
    Unfortunately our backups are taken on a weekly basis so will not contain the version of the form we want. In this case, redoing the work involved was not a huge deal, but having revisions in the future would be a wonderful feature.
    Thanks!
