14.1 Recycle Bin Overview

Recycle Bin Overview 

This page describes the Recycle Bin and contains the following sections:

Deleted items go to the Recycle Bin and can be restored if needed.
Items are kept in the Recycle Bin for 45 days and then automatically deleted.

The Recycle Bin supports the scenario of finding a deletion error and recovering the lost data. Each user can find and restore item s deleted. A super-user can find and restore item s anyone has deleted. This super-user capability is useful in cases where someone deleted an item by mistake but is not available to restore it if needed.

Users cannot be deleted; only suspended. However Custom Fields are supported in a separate Recycle Bin in the customization area, visible for the organization's Clarizen Admin user.

In the Recycle Bin

When an item is deleted, it is shown as a read only line in the Recycle Bin. The grid shows lines for all the deleted items of all item types as a flat list. Each line i tem contains all the sub-items it had before the deletion.
For example deleting a project or milestone moves all its sub-tasks, Collaboration items, Timesheet hours and reference in issues to the Recycle Bin. These become visible again if the item is restored.


You can select a single line item in the Recycle Bin at a time.
You can then use the buttons Restore, Restore To and Permanent Delete to operate on the selected item.


Permanent Delete:

Deletes the item totally and permanently.

Deleted From Column:

Shows a shortened path with the place the item was deleted from. Hovering with the mouse above the Deleted From column for any item opens a box that enables you to click Show Path .
This will show the full path where the item was deleted from.

Finding Items

Several options are available for finding any item in the Recycle Bin:


The Show drop-down filter enables filtering the items in the Recycle Bin according to Item types.


The Global Search located on the Navigation Panel enables searching for items containing text of interest in the ID, Type and Name

Grid Filter and Sort:

Use column filtering and sorting to filter and sort the line items according the values in that column.
