Undo Pending Changes

If you have made changes to one or more files that are under version control and you want to discard those changes, you can undo those pending changes. You might do this if a change is believed to be too risky, or if testing determines that the change introduces new quality or performance issues. If you have already checked in the change and want to revert it, you must instead roll back the change. For more information, see Roll Back Submitted Changes.

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must own the workspace or have the Undo other user's changes permission set to Allow. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

    • Pending Changes. To open this window, on the View menu, click Other Windows and then click Pending Changes.

    If you undo a delete, the version you deleted is restored (unless you have performed a get operation since pending the delete; in which case the version you last tried to get will be downloaded).
