Restoring the checklist

Hi All,

I have removed a checklist from my company Trello by mistake and I'm trying to retrieve it. I read there is the way, but I might not have a permission to do that. Do you know what to do it that situation?,%2C%20and%20click%20'restore'. The thing is, when I go to the Activity tab I don't have that drop-down button. Any help is much appreciated.

I think I have fond the answer: In order to recover deleted templates and checklists, you must be an admin of the organization.

@agy rudel that link is to documentation for Process St which isn't a part of Trello (nor Atlassian AFAIK) however there's no way to recover a deleted checklist in Trello (if that's what you're after) but you can see a history of the name of the checklist that was added to a card in its history, and you can also see the name of any checklist items that were completed in the card's history, so you can partially recover it.

Hello Iain, Thank you for your response. You are right, I got this link totally wrong. When you say history, do you mean activity? If not, can you advise on this please. Many Thanks. Agy

@agy rudel yes in the card activity (and board activity) you can see when a checklist is added to a card and deleted, and you can see checklist item names that are completed (you can't see them as they're added, though, so you can't do a full recovery but you can piece together some of it)

Hi Atlassian/Trello admins,

I had  the same problem, is this for real?

All applications 2021 has some kind of recover options.. please fix this, all can do wrong and by mistake click on delete checklist. (Experience from work with Jira, TFS, Easit and many more)
