Accidently delete the description of a board

Hi, I've accidently deleted the full description of a job board via the Trello phone app.

Is anyone able to advise if and how to get this back please?

I tried that, it was beyond me. It wasn't a card, it was the "about this board" description. I've just gone and re-entered it all but definitely need an "undo" button in the software somewhere.

Hey @Amy Semmens

Sorry to hear about your accidental deletion. I hear your need for an "undo" button and hopefully what I'm about to suggest will make your work in Trello feel safer.

The Backups for Trello Power-Up is an automated backup & recovery solution for Trello users like you. You can think of it as a super powerful "undo" button. Your Trello data is automatically backed up daily so you can easily recover data in the click of a button if something happens (like accidentally deleting a description, or worse – an entire board).

You can try the Backups for Trello Power-Up for free for 7 days.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at

Thanks for the response. I already pay $1400 per year for the software, I would hope something like that would be included!
