View and manage a group’s recently deleted items

When you are viewing a group that you manage in the Groups area, you can view and work with its recently deleted projects, tasks, issues, documents, and templates in the following ways:

  • View, filter, and group a list of recently deleted items
  • Restore recently deleted items that you select
  • Export a list of recently deleted items

If there are any groups above your group, their administrators can also do these things for your group. The same is true for Workfront administrators (for any group).

For more information about deleted items, see Manage deleted items.

Access requirements

You must have the following to perform the steps in this article:

Workfront plan*

Object permissions
The deleted items must be associated with the group or any of its subgroups.

*If you need to find out what plan or license type you have, contact your Workfront administrator.
