HubSpot makes it simple to update and maintain databases with bulk property editing and updating properties via workflows. But at the same time, it's also easy to incorrectly bulk edit records.
Is it possible to revert property changes? The short answer is no - at the moment, we aren't able to automatically 'revert' these properties to the values that they were before the edits were made.
But that said, we can export the historical values of a property, clean up the data to the time before these changes, then import these values back into your portal to update the object. Here is how you can do so:
Part 1: Exporting the Property History
Part 2: Editing the Export File
This is an example of what the new excel would look like:
Part 3: Import these values back into your portal
Things to note:
Do note that you won’t be able to do this if the property values before the update were null. Instead, you can follow this guide up to Part 2. Here are the steps for objects with no value:
Hope this helps!

Thank you for this tip! I've been banging my head against the desk since I found out the intern bulk-edited a property by mistake... Looks like I'll be able to fix it in minutes rather than days thanks to this.

@jleow I just found this guide and want to say THANK YOU! I've been opening each object record and clicking property history for years. Part 1 is a GAME CHANGER! maybe you didn;t build the functionality but please thank that team.
I can see this being supper helpfull exporting the history of deal stage or deal ammount. I'm constantly asked what deals have moved or why our forcast went drastically up or down. This export can come up with why and how MUCH faster than my old method.

Came accross this post, and thought I could help.
The need to know what happened with the forecast on a certain period is definitely legimate and Hubspot does provide reports on that.
You can see a list of Hubspot Created Sales Reports here, under Forecast & Pipelines. More specifically the report that would give you the insights you need is called Deal Pipeline Waterfall
Let me know if this helps, or if need any further help reach out!
All the best,
