How to restore data from accidentally deleted custom fields in Trello

Two days ago I wanted to delete two custom fields just from a single card in trello (I donot know if this is generally possible) but in a lapse of thinking I mistakenly deleted these custom fields from the whole board. Now these fields and all the data already entered are gone from all other cards as well of course.

Is there any way to restore the deleted custom fields and the contained data?

Hi Matthias,


I'm afraid it's not possible to recover that data, I'm sorry! We purposely make deleting a Custom Field a multi-step process, because it's a permanent action, with no undo. I'm sorry we can't do more to restore that!

Wouldn't it be possible to make an API call and list the board's actions, looking for a custom field delete?
