custom fields - reverse a deleted one?

Is it possible to somehow reverse a deleted custom field?
I deleted them on a label and was not aware that the fields then was deleted on all labels on the whole board and by that all information for these fields for each label on the board.

Which is a really bad thing, of course!!

I guess creating a new one with the same name wont help, so if some super tech person at Trello can help and get that data back if possible??

Our admin is in Swedish, so I am not sure about the name for it, if it is "custom fields" in english as well, but I have a screen shot of it in Swedish enclosed, hopefully that will help

Hi @Mia Nordin , welcome to the community! Yes, you got the name right. Unfortunately, when you delete a custom field there's no way to recover that information. Additionally, if you create a new custom field with the same name won't bring back the previous custom field and its previous info.

Hello :) Thank you so much for your reply.
Then it's like I suspected.

Well, lessons learned the hard way not to haste when in Trello. I assumed the delete was only for the label worked from (and did not read all the text in full then).

Suggestion when doing something that affects the whole board is to have important information regarding that in read. I remember all the text not really strongly pointing that you. The only red was the confirm button to delete. For ex a pop up in read - "Are you sure, this will effect the whole board".

But again, I was careless and in a haste, but that would most certainly have stopped me.

Wishing you all here a Merry Christmas  :)

Sorry for the loss of your work. And yes, the text might not be informative enough and I'm sure passing this feedback to our team for consideration. Thanks for sharing your opinion on this.
