Enable search for deleted contacts & companies

platform9mktg

Hubspot enables you to look through deleted contacts and recover them manually, but if you delete a large number (say 100K which we just did) trying to find one or two is difficult. 

 

If we could search using emails (i.e., the same way you can search elsewhere in Hubspot) that would help make recovery easier and mean we do not need to reach out to Hubspot support (who has search in the back end).

Definitely a missing feature. HubSpot is great about offering search everywhere. There's no reason why this should have a a seach box just like the contacts view.

Even if we could sort the list of deleted contacts by email address, that would help  alot

This is a MUST if you bulk delete contacts but then someone requests that a specific contact gets restored. Too hard to dig through hundreds of pages to find them

I see this request is a year old. Commenting to get more attention to this post.

I need this feature as well. Can't look through 10k deleted records to restore just one

Yes please, its so time consuming to look through the full list, when you are able to remember part of the name or email address a search box would cut down the manual part of this so much.

I agree. Without search/filter, it's so time consuming trying to find individual contacts to restore.
