Is it possible to restore fields that were accidentally deleted?

Article Number:040220

You cannot restore accidentally deleted fields and the data entered in them.

However, if you have exported record data to a CSV file before the fields are deleted, you can re-register the data by adding the fields back to the app and then importing the CSV file.
The detailed steps are as follows.

  1. Open the app, then click the App Settings icon (the gear-shaped icon at the upper right of the "View" screen).

  2. Add fields of the same type as those that were deleted by dragging and dropping them, then update the app.

  3. Click Import from File from the Options icon at the upper right of the "View" screen, then select the file for import.

  4. When you are prompted with Select Data Scope, select either of the radio buttons.
    If you have not edited the CSV since the export, select the First row is header radio button.

  5. Specify a column in the file for the field whose data you want to update. Also select the "Key to Bulk Update" check box for the field you want to specify as "Key to Bulk Update."
    For example, if you select the "Key to Bulk Update" check box for Record number, the record whose record number matches the number in the CSV file is updated.

    Setting example: Updating the "Company Name" field in the records whose record number matches that in the CSV file Image

  6. Click Import on the upper left side of the screen.
    The CSV file is imported and the records are bulk updated.
