If you’ve accidentally deleted a task, and you missed the Undo button, you can still return it to its original queue from the trash with these simple steps.
Locate deleted tasks
Deleted tasks will remain in the trash for 30 days before they’re permanently deleted. During that time, you can restore any task in the Trash to its original queue.
Restore from the trash queue
The Trash is located in the left hand panel in the same block as Inbox and Assignments.
Any time you delete a task from your personal queues, the task is stored in the general trash queue. This is where you can find all trashed tasks and restore them to their original queue or to a new queue of your choice.
Restore from a specific queue
If you know what queue the task lived in, you can view trashed items for just that queue by clicking the More menu and selecting View Trash.
👉 Pro Tip: If your task came from a Team, it won’t show up in your trash queue. To retrieve trashed tasks from teams, use this method or view the Team Trash.
Active and archived tasks
Tasks are organized in the trash queue the same as in any other queue. When a task is archived and then deleted, it will display under Archived tasks in the trash queue.
👉 Pro Tip: If you can’t find a deleted task in the trash queue and it hasn’t been 30 days, check for tasks that were already archived when they were deleted by switching to the Archived view.
Recover deleted tasks
Restore from the task menu
You can restore trashed tasks by choosing Restore Task from the task's More menu.
This process will attempt to restore the task back to its previous position in the queue where it was removed.
When you see the popup confirming the task has been restored, you can click Locate to be taken directly to that task’s location.
If the queue where the task originally lived has been removed, you’ll see a message letting you know you’ll need to drag the task to a new queue of your choosing.
Drag and drop to a new queue
You can restore tasks from the trash by dragging them from the trash queue into another queue.
When subtasks are trashed, they’re separated from the parent task.
This means they have to be restored individually if you need to recover them.
