Imagine the first day of 2023, and Brad just realized, “oh my god, just before we closed for holiday’s someone has accidentally deleted some records from Dynamics 365 CRM.” unfortunately, once records are deleted in Dynamics 365, they cannot be recovered, as there is no “Trash” or “Recycle Bin” that you can use to undo or restore deleted records.
However, if you have a recent backup of your Dynamics 365 database, you may be able to restore the deleted records from the backup. Otherwise, there is no out-of-the-box functionality to retrieve deleted history records in Dynamics 365 CRM.
Brad just remembered before the holidays he had attended Inogic Webinar Series of their Microsoft AppSource Preferred Apps to Boost Productivity this Holiday Season, and Inogic has an app called Undo2Restore to recover deleted CRM records.
But let’s first understand the impact of unintentionally deleting or losing your data on the business.
Accidentally deleting important CRM data can put your business in a messy situation and result in dire consequences.
Here are some statistics that can help you grasp the impact of poor data management on your business:
- Results from various studies conclude that, in any company, approximately 30% of all resources are expended on avoidable data-related activities.
- 60 percent of employees could save six or more hours a week if repetitive tasks like manually restoring unintentionally deleted data were to be automated. In fact, cloning CRM data and Setting up a proper export routine within CRM also acts as a productivity booster.
