Dynamics 365 Recycle Bin

Have you or one of your colleagues accidentally deleted a record in Dynamics 365?

Problem
Due to the fact that Dynamics 365 does not have a ‘Recycle Bin’ feature to easily restore a single record, you would normally have to restore an entire backup from a previous day.

Solution
All credit goes out to the XrmToolBox application and a plugin called Recycle Bin!

Prerequisites
Auditing must have been enabled on the entity where the record existed before deletion.
