Hi, I’m Amalie with Systematic Excellence Consulting. And today I’m going to go over how to undo something in ClickUp.

So if you’ve made a mistake, and you need to undo it. So the first thing I’m going to show you is in the task description. Let’s say you accidentally delete what you had in there, there’s this little clock logging icon here, you click on that. And then you can click on restored. So this is going to save the history for it. So I’m just going to click on that. So it’ll restore it back to the one that I want. And it’ll be in there.

Then if you do leave a comment, and then you decide to delete it, briefly, there’s going to be something here to undo it. That does go away eventually, but it’ll be there briefly.

Now let’s say you’ve deleted you know, maybe a folder by accident or a task or something like that. If you go to trash at the two circles, the bottom left, click on trash. And then all the things that you’ve deleted will be popped up here. And you can, you know, clear your trash if you want, and it’ll tell you what it is. So maybe this custom field, I want to restore that. So now it’s gonna restore it back to where it was. I can restore tasks, I can restore lists, folders and it’ll tell you what it is that was deleted and then the location for it, when it was deleted and who deleted it. So that’s how you undo in ClickUp.

Okay, so in the doc, you also have the option for restoring by clicking on history, and then it will give you when it was last save. So if you did have something that was in there, you accidentally deleted it, you can restore what you had in there.
