If you accidentally delete an activity or page in Canvas, there is a way to check and see if it can be retrieved. This will not work 100% of the time, but it’s always worth trying.

  1. Open the course in Canvas.
  2. Locate the URL field in your browser. This will begin with canvas.pdx.edu:
Canvas course URL.
  1. Put your cursor at the end of this URL address and add: /undelete (you must include the forward slash character).
Canvas URL with /undelete appended
  1. Enter return. The resulting list of items are those available to restore to your course.
List of deleted items with Restore button
  1. Select the restore button for any items you want to undelete.
