Retrieval of deleted lists
We would like a function to retrieve deleted lists. We know that on some platforms you are able to go back 30 days or something similar to restore items and we would like a similar feature added as we recently found that an incredibly long list with 200+ items were deleted and had taken the lecturer a while to compile it. We believe that even though this is a rarity there should be some sort of fail-safe in place to accommodate the accidental deletion of a reading list.
This would be useful to us too. We have has instances where a "tidy up" has taken place and lists with digitisations have been deleted in error. Which means more work for everyone to sort it out.
It would absolutely be beneficial to have this feature on Talis
Yes, it would be very sensible to have this fail-safe.
All for a recycle bin or backup version, not just for lists but also sections. We keep list deletion permissions locked down to System Admins we have had instances where large sections of lists have been accidentally deleted.
More detailed 'Recent Changes' history in TARL (where changes made in draft lists as well as published) would help here too, including timestamp/date/log in so list of changes additions/deletions can be tracked)

The ability to restore recently deleted lists would be very useful. While only Library staff can delete lists at UEA, it would be helpful in case of any accidental deletions.
