What the Recycle Bin Includes

The Recycle Bin retains all boards deleted from private projects and any boards deleted in shared projects, as long as you hold the role of a project editor or project manager. This ensures you can easily restore accidentally deleted content without any worries.

Deleting Boards and Transferring Files

When you delete a board, you have the choice to delete any attached files or transfer them to another board. For instance, if you delete a board from a private project that includes media and presentation documents, you can opt to transfer these files to any other board in a private or shared project, as long as you have the role of a project editor or higher for that project.

Finding and Restoring Deleted Boards

Once you’ve deleted a board, you can find it in the Recycle Bin. Use the search function and sort options within the Recycle Bin to easily navigate and locate your deleted boards. The grid view will display information about when the board was deleted and its related project details.

Restoring a deleted board is straightforward. Click on the board, and either use the three-dot menu or simply click the board to initiate the restoration process. The board and its associated files will be moved back to its original location, just as you had it before deletion.

Understanding Board Permissions and Deleted Boards

As an example, if you delete multiple boards from a ‘Weekly Meetings’ shared project while having project editor status, these boards will appear in the Recycle Bin. However, if your role is downgraded to a ‘Project Commentator’, the deleted boards will vanish from the Recycle Bin. Don’t worry, though; once you regain ‘Project Editor’ status, the deleted boards will reappear in the Recycle Bin for easy restoration.

Restoring Boards After a Project Ceases to Exist

Even if a project ceases to exist, you can still restore its boards. Restoring a board will recreate the project with its former permissions intact, ensuring you can access and utilize important information seamlessly.
