Recover Deleted Content

Blue arrow - undoDid you know you can see a list of deleted content in a Canvas course, and recover it?

This undocumented feature does not include every change made in a course, but most items can be restored from the hidden ‘undelete’ page:

Here’s how to find it:

  1. On the home page of any course, note the URL.
    EXAMPLE:
    Undelete trick - URL 1
     
  2. Add ‘/undelete’ to the end of the URL, hit Enter
    EXAMPLE:
    Undelete trick - URL 2

The Restore Deleted Items page will display a list of items in chronological order, including a restore button used to recover deleted content.

  1. This little trick, or for me a lifesaver at times when I mistakenly delete something that I want to use again somewhere. Thank you for your tips and help. You guys are great.
