Canvas: Using Undelete

This article contains step by step instructions for using Canvas's undelete feature.

Canvas's undelete feature allows you to recover information you deleted. It is still not 100% reliable, but it works most of the time.

  1. Go to Canvas and log in. Go to the course in which you need to undelete something.
  2. Look at the URL in your address field. You should see https://canvas.rice.edu/courses/some_number. This some_number is your course number.
  3. After your course number, add
    /undelete
    and hit the return/enter key on your keyboard.
  4. You should see a list of content you deleted.
  5. Follow the prompt to restore.

If you still need help after following these steps, please contact teaching@rice.edu.
