I am using SharePoint online. I am wondering if any I edit in homepage of communication site and after few days I want previous view how can I restore it. I dont want it to do manually. Is there any way to restore previous version or view in Classic SharePoint site.

I think that you are referring to a page here, not a site. You can turn on Versioning in your pages library so that when you edit a page it will save the changes as a new version, then you can go into the pages library and revert to a previous version.

If you are referring to a site restore, then you will have to open a support request with Microsoft, through the O365 admin center, to have the site restored from backup. Fair warning that Microsoft only keeps a limited number of days worth of backups, and the restore process is not very quick......

  • Thank You so much for your answer. It helps. Can I ask You one more question, Where can I ecute scripts in SharePoint Site for changes in background images or any thing else? Jun 13, 2019 at 20:52

  • For executing PowerShell scripts against SharePoint Online you can run them from any PC. I recommend looking into PowerShell PNP for managing SharePoint Online. github.com/SharePoint/PnP-PowerShell Jun 14, 2019 at 17:01
