just deleted a student's comment on Discussion accidentally...
is there any way to restore the comments?
Canethy, depending on why you posted the comment (originally), your comment might still be in the Canvas Beta or Test environment. My recommendation is to check there and see if you can find it - How do I access the Canvas test environment? & How do I access the Canvas beta environment?
Hope this helps!
Hi Canethy Yip
Canvas does have an undelete function that lets you restore certain content items (pages, files etc) but I've just done a quick test and unfortunately it doesn't show deleted discussion posts. Therefore I suggest logging a support ticket with Instructure to ask if they have a recent backup of the course from which they can retrieve the deleted comment.
There is no warning/confirm message and there is no way to recover a deleted discussion post in the event one is accidently removed. The Canvas support desk cannot recover them either; they can only recover entire discussion topics, not individual postings.
I would like to see both a warning message with a confirm delete message and a recovery option for either (or both) Students and Instructors.
Steven, it sounds like you are suggesting a feature idea, and the place for that is The specified item was not found.. When you head over there, you'll see that the feature idea process is currently on hold (please refer to Changes are closer for Canvas Community Feature Ideas), but during this holding period, new submissions are still being collected.
