I accidentially just deleted one of my Microsoft To-Do tasks. I cannot see the trash bin. Is there any?

Have you tried to look in the Outlook recycle bin?

Found it, thx :)

Hello Benedict

 

The below support documentation will give clear steps on how to recover a deleted To-Do from a list .

 

https://todosupport.helpshift.com/a/microsoft-to-do/?l=en&p=web&s=getting-started&f=how-can-i-restor...

 

This documentation might be helpful for you and others in the future .

the FAQ does not exist @Kiran Thalakokkula other than deleted items and recover from server what are the other options?

I can't find how to restore my deleted task either... any suggestions?

 

@Salvatore Biscari I am having the same problem. I deleted some of the text from a task in Microsoft To Do and can't get it back. I checked my outlook files and it isn't there. Can you recommend anything else?

 

@ereissman Did you ever find a solution for your issue?  I have the same one :(

@Benedikt Scheerer @Allison_Smith123 @ereissman @Jonathanfmac @myanalytics2019 

 

I found the deleted Tasks/list if I export all the To Do's from Outlook.com

After copying the missing Tasks/list to Tasks in my POP-connected O365 account in Outlook (desktop app), the restored Tasks/list still doesn’t reappear in MS To Do!!! AGH!
