Restore a Power Apps - Canvas App created within Microsoft Teams


We recently implemented a Power Apps - Canvas App which was created and managed within Microsoft Teams for Construction and Engineering Company based out of Washington, United States. One of the requirements arose was to restore the previous version of the app as the current version of the app was having some bugs which lead to undesired behavior. So, we restored the previous version of the canvas app within the Microsoft Teams.

In this blog, we will explore the step-by-step process to follow to restore a canvas app that is created within the Microsoft Teams.

Steps to follow

Step 1: From the left pane in Microsoft Teams, select "Power Apps" and then click on the "Build" tab.

Step 2: Select the team in which you had created the app and wanted to restore that app. After that, click on the "See all" link inside the "Built by this team" tab.

Step 3: Select "Apps" and then click on "three dots (…)" which is beside your app’s name of which you want to restore. Select "Details" from the options.

Step 4: Select "Versions" from the "App Details" screen and select the version that you want to restore. After that, click on "three dots" in the selected version of the app and select the "Restore" option from the options.

Step 5: When you click on the "Restore" option, it will create a new version of the app which will become the latest version of the app. We can make the required changes as needed to the restored version and to use this latest version we have to publish it so that it can be available for the other users.

Select the "three dots" of the latest version and click on the "Publish this version".

Step 6: Select "Publish this version" to confirm that you want to publish that version to make it live.

Note: You can restore one of the versions of your App which were created in the last six months.


These are all the necessary steps you need to follow to restore the Canvas app which is created inside the Microsoft Teams. Hope this helps!
