Introducing Trash Can: How you can recover your Deleted Analytics
From now onwards; users will never again have to worry about deleting data or accounts. Because Google have launched a new feature “Trash Can” which allows users to undo deletes in Google Analytics.
Trash Can is a safety net that saves information each time users delete a view, property, or account from Google Analytics. To use Trash Can, Analytics users simply select an account from the Administration tab and click the Trash Can icon. Check off what you want to reclaim, click “Restore,” and voilà! Your view, property or account is now just as it was before you deleted it.
The only catch is that Trash Can only stores information for 35 days. After that, it gets deleted permanently.
This feature will be rolling out to all Google Analytics accounts in the coming weeks; information is being stored in Trash Can as of today. When the product does appear in Analytics accounts, all deleted information should appear in the Trash Can folder.
Trash Can is a direct response to user feedback, according to a Google rep. “We heard from a lot of users that had mistakenly deleted their accounts, properties, and views. Especially in a multi-user environment, mistakes like this happen too often. Trash can give users a safety net, a chance to recover things before being deleted forever.”
