How do I restore contacts, companies, or deals that were accidentally deleted?

Last updated: June 22, 2018


You can use the recycle bin to restore contacts, companies and deals up to 90 days after they were deleted.

Please note: users need admin access and the permission to add and edit users to use the recycle bin. GDPR-related deletions will not be held in recycling bin, and will be permanently deleted with immediate effect in compliance with GDPR.

To restore a deleted contact, company, or deal:

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to ContactsCompanies, or Deals.
  • Click the Actions dropdown menu in the upper right, then select Restore contacts/companies/deals.

  • The recycle bin will open in a new browser tab or window. Select the checkbox next to the name of the contact/company/deal to restore, then click Restore in the upper right.

  • To select all contacts on a page, select the checkbox at the top of the table. To further select all contacts in the date range, click Select all contacts in this date range.
