Ability to undo or discard changes for CMS editors

Clients often make mistakes when editing their website and the fact that they have to go back and completely redo what was there before seems unnecessary. I'm surprised this wasn't already on the wish list.

    Must have! It is so confusing for clients, especially when there are two and more editors!

    What the heck. I'm not going to charge a client for fixing a mistake they made but at the same time i don't want to have them contact me everytime they mess up. THIS IS A MUST PLEASE.

    Yes! this along with anything that affects the collaborators experience of your CMS should be prioritized above & beyond designer features regardless of Votes.

    Despite how good Webflow/Webflow CMS is sometimes the client tries to dictate the CMS & without simple features like these its hard to justify to the client even though us as developers and designers prefer it. For this reason it makes good business sense from Webflow's point of view to make sure the collaborators experience of your CMS is the best it possibly can be.

    I agree, it is a hassle with clients without this seemingly basic feature

    This is definitely a MUST! I was just trying out the editor for the first time and messed up my site because I didn't realize this was an issue. Imagine what clients are going to do... People expect a 'cancel' option. Webflow, please fix this. Don't give Wordpress the chance to joke about this Webflow issue in their video's.

    I just had this problem today with a client. There's an undo button in designer, and has been since the beginning of webflow. What's so hard about adding one to the editor? Come on guys...Fix the problem already! Please! This was asked a year and a half ago.

    Agree! Please implement. Clients need to be able to back-track in the Editor.

    Agreed! Just trained my client on her site and it was the only element of the editor that made her wary.

    Just joined and immediately ran into this issue.  I'm loving Webflow so far, but CMS undo, and/or removing individual changes, needs to be a thing!  

  • Matt Jones commented

    Wow... just ran into this in testing. Absolutely unbelievable that a basic undo is not available (or at least commit or discard changes) in the Editor... No way I can explain this to a client being set up with the editor. More astounding that this still has not been resolved. Stuff like this makes the solution a no go

    Please! It is a very important feature for my clients to be able to undo or discard changesin the CMS. Thank you!

    This is one of the first things I've run across with Webflow that's kind of a head-scratcher, but I agree; an editor is going to be prone to making unintentional changes, and it's disconcerting to have to publish things you're not confident in. Editors should be able to 1) undo changes, and 2) discard published changes if they are no longer applicable.

    Just started working with the editor and came across this issue straight away. The editor should be super simple and intuitive for clients to use. If there is no way to undo changes I can see them being scared to use the editor.

    Also, if you select any editable text but don't actually make a change, the editor still marks it as an unpublished change.

    Surprised this hasn't been fixed in two years!

    After handing off a few sites to clients, this is one of our most important needed features. Please implement soon!

    Why in the world has such an important feature gone ignored by Webflow for 2 years?

    I recently ran my first Webflow client through the editor and was dumb founded there was no undo or cancel button in the editor, what the?!?!

    Please, please please Webflow team you need to fix this. 

    This feature/bug along with no CMS gallery are two huge pain points I discovered building my first webflow site and both seem like absolute no brainers to have as features.

    Thanks in advance for giving this priority now that ecommerce is live ;-)

    this is rediculous. people complain since 2016 about this necessary feature and I have to be honest. It's pathetic that it's still not implemented 3 years later.

    Why do you even have a Wishlist site if you don't look at it?

    Wow, how embarrassing is this one, just had a session with a client only for her to ask "where do I undo stuff in the editor?" I had no idea i told her!! Now i know.. She wants an undo button she has told me :(

    I'll have to now tell prospective clients there is NO UNDO button as a one of the cons to using webflow, as basic as this feature is! I feel this may turn them off Webflow as clients are known to have sticky fingers and constantly making mistakes.

    Please update us on plans Webflow!!

    I was just running through editor with a client today showing the user interface. I had barely had a look in great detail and was surprised to find such a basic function missing. I had to say to them that I will get back on how to undo things easier.

    It is a MUST to be implemented so that unwanted contacted by the client every time they need an action undoing is minimised. PLEASE IMPLEMENT!!!

    BASIC text editing must have the ability to undo...! Almost unbelievable that this is not the case. :-o

    Really need this! Has the webflow team come back with any response? Even a version history and click to go back to that stage.

    As amazing and robust as Webflow is, I honestly cannot believe that THIS is going to be the thing that makes me not use Webflow for my agency's client sites. I don't care about whether this should have been done at launch or later - it definitely should have been done by now. Unreal.

    The year is 2020 and Webflow has yet to respond to this request... we need a cancel or undo button for CMS Editors. It makes zero sense to not have this very basic capability.

    I've found this thread while looking for the undo function, i can't understand how this is not supported - such a basic need?
