Help!! I accidently deleted my resources for a unit...can I get them back??? Thanx! Sandy
sandy, it doesn't work for everything, but I would try the secret "undelete" feature in Canvas. To do this go to the home page of your course and then add /undelete at the end of the URL. It should look something like this (but with your specific Canvas URL information) - https://richland.instructure.com/courses/2007244/undelete. You should then see a list of things that have recently been deleted and you should have the option to "restore" them.
Also, something else to think about - if the resources are files, pages, or assignments - and you deleted them from the Module - then there is a good chance the content is still in your course (in Files, Pages, or Assignments) and just needs to be re-added to your course Modules.
Hope this helps!
Dueling fingers yet again, my friend!
Hi sandy abrams
You are going to love this - simply open the course, put your cursor at the right end of the course URL, backspace until you get to the Canvas course ID number, then type "/undelete" and hit enter. You will get a dashboard showing deleted content from your course. Select the content you want, then restore. It's like magic!
I hope this helps,
I keep forgetting that undelete trick Kona and Kelley.Thanks for the reminder.
Did it work sandy ?
Yes…thanx so much for your help…
I'm glad I took the time to read through this. I had no idea about the undelete ability in Canvas. This is extremely helpful.
Oh Tim…I am glad I could help someone else!! Sandy
Hello sandy abrams...
I am going to go ahead and mark this question as "Assumed Answered" because both Kona Jones and Kelley L. Meeusen have given you solutions for the "undelete" trick. I'll also add my own solution (which is really the same as theirs) that has not been mentioned yet... I refer people to a blog post written about three years ago from Shaun Holland in the Canvas Admins group here in the Canvas Community called Undeleting things in Canvas.
If you are not yet following the Canvas Admins group, you can click on the link I've provided, and then click on the "Follow" button at the top right corner of the page. Also, in that same area, you may need to click on the "Actions" >> "Join group" menu option.
I hope this information is helpful for you, Sandy!
