Unintentionally deleted an entire module

Jump to solution

So I just inadvertently deleted a module. I googled and found the undelete typed into the title bar process.  I was able to regain one element from the module.  But not the rest of the content.

Is there any way to retrieve the whole module?

Hello rtillotson...

Well, that doesn't sound fun at all!  sadpanda‌  It sounds like you've tried the undelete trick from  @hollands ‌, but that only helped a little bit.  Have you tried looking in your school's "test" or "beta" environments to see if the content still exists there?  It's worth a shot...

How do I access the Canvas test environment as an instructor?

How do I access the Canvas beta environment as an instructor?

Just be sure that you log out of either of those environments (How do I log out of Canvas as an instructor?‌) before you sign back in to your school's "Production" environment...which is the environment you typically sign into on a daily basis.

I hope this might help you, Scott.  Good luck!

Thank you for responding. I did have to re-create some items in the module, but most of my material was saved in google docs so it was not like re-inventing the wheel. I have a note in with our folks here just in case I have another catastrophe.

Chris, thank you for responding. Our school has just started with Canvas this semester, so are all learning a new system.
