As you edit your application in the editor, it maintains a history of your changes. This is useful if you need to view or restore an earlier version of your application.
How does version history work?
Every time you save your application in the editor, AppSheet saves the current version in a Version History log. Sometimes these changes are ones you make explicitly. Other times the changes are made automatically by the system when it checks the consistency of your application.
View a version of your app
To view a version of your app:
- Open your app in the editor.
- Go to the Manage > Versions pane.
- Expand the Version History section.
- Click Get Version History.
- Click View associated with the version you want to view.
The editor opens in a new browser tab and displays the selected version of the app in read-only mode. You cannot edit this read-only version of the app. However, you can restore this version of the app as described below.
The emulator shows a preview as well. If the underlying data spreadsheet structure has changed, the app itself may not run in the emulator.
Restore a version of your app:
To restore a version of your app:
