Accidental removal of list - need undo option

Accidental removal of list - need undo option

In trying to merge lists I accidentally unchecked a list and removed over 6000 contacts from a key, key, key list. There absolutely needs to be an undo option or button or option to backup the list within the system. It also should warn you that you will be deleting X number of contacts from a list. It did not do this so I had no idea I had mischecked a list. Please add this feature as soon as possible. Thank you!

Thanks for sharing your feedback, I am very sorry to hear this happened. 

 

Can you tell me more about how you deleted the contacts? Were you on the list view or contacts view? Did you select all contacts and delete or select from the list menu and choose to delete?

 

If you selected all the contacts within a list you should have seen this message:

 9-19-2014 8-34-46 AM.jpg

If you selected to delete the list you should have seen this:

Hi there, It would be very helpful to have an undo feature for email list activity.

When copying contacts to other list, there needs to be an undo or restore to x date/time option for when things go wrong (which, sadly, is often since CC upgraded the contacts tab). I would also like to be able to select multiple lists and create a new list that contains all of those contacts. That would negate the need for my first request.
