Need to update a Field with the previous value it had, what is the best way to do this?

So we had a system accidentally update a bunch of first name and last name records to NULL even though we had actual First and Last Names. I want to basically undo the update for both fields so that the NULLs are replaced with the previous value.

Anyone have examples/steps of how to do this?

Thanks!!

Re: Need to update a Field with the previous value it had, what is the best way to do this?

The only way is via API.

Use the getLeadChanges endpoint to get the old values.

Then reimport using your choice of method (standard UI CSV import, API-based CSV import, or one of the paginated lead update API endpoints like Update or Push).
