Hi April,

Once you right click a task, and choose Delete, they are gone. There is no way to recover these tasks. If you had Premium, there are the Backups, which would have an older version available.

I don't understand why there can't be a trash feature. Surely this is trivial to implement, you already have this for completed tasks. This is a major failure in the product. I was previously very happy with Todoist but this failing is seriously making me reconsider Wunderlist.

Maybe if you spent less time working on gimmicks like Karma and worked on BASIC core features.

Hi Sam,

We'll look into adding one in the future. Please note that the app also gives you the opportunity to undo it.

Hi Clyde,

If you miss the undo button then you are screwed. Also, undo doesn't retrieve deleted sub-tasks.
