undelete tasks


I accidentally deleted some important tasks several hours ago, so, how I can undelete it?
also, does Todoist have history of changing, so I could restore some other data?
thank you.

Hello Dmitry,

The only way to retrieve deleted tasks is by using the Backups feature. With Todoist Premium, one backup is generated for you per day, but you can create additional ones manually whenever you want. You can restore the data using the "Import from template" feature.

All details about how it works are shown in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U96Nco_but4

Best regards,

Wow, no "undo," "undelete" or "trash bin" feature? What a terrible thing to leave out. I just deleted a task on accident and now I'm scratching my head as to what I deleted!

I agree, I don't know what I just hit, but I accidentally deleted about 8 projects. Would be so much better if they went into a "trash bin" for a period of time so you can restore them if needed.

Oh goodness, thankfully I am a premium member and was able to recover.

How did you recover? I'm a premium member. The video shows Preferences but I don't have that on my menu.

Please look at the top of the window and you'll see a gear (cog) icon. Click on it, go to "Todoist Settings" and then "Backups" :-)
