Recycle bin/undelete


Sometimes, accidents happen, especially on Monday mornings before the first cup of coffee… If you delete a folder and all its contents, there doesn’t seem to be any recycle bin from where you can restore the folder/tasks. Is this on the roadmap?



Hey @beritrep,

Awesome catch! Thanks for the suggestion.

Yes, it’s 100% necessary to have at least an ‘Undo’ button, or sort of a Recycle Bin.

Here’s the partial solution until we develop it (March probably): Create a folder that you’ll call ‘Archive/Completed’ or something similar to that. Make sure to move all the ‘finished’ or ‘done’ items there, instead of completely deleting them.

I hope that’s not too complicated for now… But we’ll speed things up here. I promise!

All the best and thanks again! :slight_smile:

+1 for this. Having Recycle bean is must have.



Hey guys! Undo (on items) are on the way! Be prepared :slight_smile:

But please give us Archieve / Trashcan so in case someone deletes something we can restore later. Notion has archieve for each table/board as well as global.



Would love undo, deleted a folder by accident and lost hours of work :frowning: Undo please!

Hey @mail4vinh!

Gosh, I’m sorry that happened.

Here’s the thing: For now, we have an ‘Undo’ feature for items. That was the first undo feature to implement, and we’re going to continue releasing for folders, tabs (views), boards…

However: our devs can restore your folder in a few minutes. Can you just send us the board ID (link in your browser when the board is opened), and the name of that specific folder you’ve deleted by accident?

Thanks in advance.



How do you access the Undo feature for items? (given its a deleted item?)



Hey @lumenon_infinity!

You can’t access the ‘folder’ where are located the items deleted.

Undo is available once you delete an item, a folder, and a comment.

That was the first step in implementing a more safe environment for your projects.

We’ll continue with creating a specific ‘Recycle bin’ or ‘Archive’ folder/place where you can access the deleted data (items, folders, and comments). I’m afraid that can’t be of a high priority right now, but hopefully we can focus on it in a couple of months. :slight_smile:
