Undo?

It would be really nice if I could generally "undo" a change made to a release plan or an accidentally deleted feature etc. rather than having to redo work if I just unintentionally hit the delete button. The auto-save function is nice but no ability to go back is a little unfortunate.

    There are currently a few ways that  this can be supported through the product.

    In all text editors, a CTRL-Z action is available to "undo" any actions within text editors. There is also a "history" icon available which allows you to see the history of a text description and revert back to any version in the history. 

    Throughout the application on various "delete" actions, we also provide a follow up prompt to confirm whether the delete was desired.

    For all other actions, we do not currently have plans for an "undo" button but feel that other areas can be typically be reverted back. Based on the current workarounds noted above, along with current priorities, we are unlikely to make changes in the near term. We hope you can understand.

    Somehow deleted final published draft of a custom roadmap today on accident. It was right next to an earlier draft I had meant to remove... there was a delay in the server response and I must have somehow sent extra clicks through. Couldn't undo. Ugh...

    Please, please, please, reconsider this, people make mistakes, we are just humans and honestly it is expected to have a way to recover something that was deleted by mistake. Most application allows it. It would be super beneficial...

    Seriously, undo would be extremely beneficial and time saving. It is very easy to accidentally click out of a line and auto-save incomplete or incorrect requirements or features. It is also a nuisance when you spend a lot of time working on a requirement, then accidently click another feature before saving the requirement. This results in loss of all of your work with no history to go back to.

    I just moved a feature when my mouse got stuck, took 20 mins to work out which one it was.

    To add to this, being able to add/delete and "do" things in real time is now always great do being able to revert is always useful, but simpler to say than to implement I guess...

    As a new user this morning I deleted a field that I didn't think was on my persona. It was, data gone.

    Having some kind undo, or at least a back up save option would be good so you can always go back to a known point. Sure, that may mean adding back data which can be just as bad, but in terms of storage space not a major ask surely?

    Please add this feature or give me the option to disable auto-save.

    Just discovered four extensive use cases have disappeared from a feature card.  Not sure who deleted them... having a "Recover" feature sure would be nice right now!

    I agree! I just lost a feature with lots of requirements by using the Actions button (which I thought was just for the selected requirement). What app doesn't have global Undo?

    I accidentally moved the Releases roadmap dates and don't know what the original dates were. Without an undo, I'm stuck guessing.  Unfortunate I can't simply have an undo. Btw, undo is standard practice in most software. It should really be par for the course.

    I have also just fallen into this situation and accidentally lost a ton of 'requirements' by accidentally deleting the entire 'feature' by using the wrong 'Actions' button. Learning by doing i guess, but a 'recover' option would be fantastic! Upvote!

Recovering a deleted idea OR Controlling the idea delete action

It would be helpful to either have a 'trash bin' for people who deleted an idea by mistake so it could be recovered OR Have a specific access control to the delete action, so only one person in the organization would be able to delete an idea.

Add redo/undo button in text boxes

Merged
Too many times users are editing text in a box and delete part of the comment by mistake while editing the text box. An undo/redo button in the text editor would be super useful!
