How To Undo SharePoint Changes

Undoing changes in SharePoint can be done using various methods depending on the situation. If you are editing a page and made a mistake before hitting the publish button, you can simply click the Undo button, similar to how you would in Microsoft Word. However, once you publish the page, you can no longer undo changes.

In this case, you can use the Version History feature to restore the page to a previous version. To do this, go to the Site Pages library, locate the page you want to restore, right-click on it, and choose Version History. From there, you can select the version you want to restore and click Restore.

Keep in mind that the page will be restored but not published, so you can review it before making it official. Once you’re satisfied with the restored version, you can republish it to make it visible to others. Additionally, if you’re still in the editing process and want to undo changes, you can use the Undo button on the command bar.

Follow this step-by-step professional guide to effectively manage your SharePoint content and restore your site to a previous state.

Restoring SharePoint Pages using Version History

If you have published a page in SharePoint and need to undo changes, you can use the Version History feature to restore it to a previous version. This is especially helpful when you want to revert back to an earlier state and review the content before making it official again.

To begin the restoration process, navigate to the Site Pages library and locate the specific page you want to restore. Right-click on the page and select the “Version History” option. This will bring up a list of all the previous versions of the page.

From the Version History interface, you can now choose the version you want to restore. Simply select the desired version and click the “Restore” button. Keep in mind that the page will be restored to its previous state but will not be published immediately.

After the page has been restored, you have the opportunity to review the content and ensure everything is as desired. Once you are satisfied with the restored version, you can proceed to republish it, making it visible to others.
