Recovery of records¶
If you want to recover one or more records, select the relevant records by checking the checkbox in the first column. A new button Recover x records is displayed. Clicking on it "undeletes" the records and they are available again in the Page or List view.
A record is recovered with its previous visibility. If it was not hidden when it was deleted, it is visible in the frontend without any further action.
