Provide a recycle bin for deleted items

In case an item has been deleted by mistake (a requirement, a feature, a note, a to do...) the recycle bin would keep the item for a short period of time in case we need to retrieve it. For example, for 24 hours after deletion we can choose to retrieve it back or it will be permanently deleted.

    Currently when deleting items (requirements, features, notes, to-do's, etc.), there is a follow-up prompt to double check whether the permanent "delete" action was intended. 

    At this stage, we don't have plans for a Recycle bin, but feel that the browser prompt should help to serve as a final double check. I hope you can understand.

    Here's a way to solve the recycling bin dilemma:  Create a product called Recycle Bin (RECYCLE).  Store it at the root of your product hierarchy and edit permissions to meet your needs, such as Product Owners only.  Instead of deleting a feature, just change the release to RECYCLE.

    I would have found this useful on several occasions - the ability to restore a deleted item would be useful.
