Recovering Deleted Data

There are cases where a user may unknowingly or accidentally delete data. Some common scenarios are:

  • The user did not clear their selection on a given page prior to working with a new selection
  • The user used the "jump" button from a selection on a sub-page and they jumped to a different page than they expected
  • Files attached to a record have been removed
Tip: Use the Deleted Record Research report to investigate missing records or as a simple way to identify explicitly the records you know were deleted in error that you wish restored by Think Ministry Professional Services.
