Can I restore a deleted template?

I accidentally deleted one of our most frequently used project template. Is there anyway to get it back, or do I need to try and rebuild it from the ground up?

Welcome, @Robyn_Best, and sorry to hear this!

I think you should email and perhaps they’d be able to restore it for you.

When you delete a project, you’re sent a link in email (some minutes later) to recover it yourself, but I don’t know if that applies to project templates, so best to check in with Support.

If worst comes to worst, you can duplicate a project that you previously created from that template, save it as a template, and update as appropriate so you’re not starting from scratch.

Best wishes,


Thank you @lpb! I had my Asana emails set up to go to a seperate email inbox, so I hadn’t seen the deleted project email. I can confirm that you do still recieve that notification when a template–rather than a project–is deleted! :slight_smile:


Glad that worked for you, @Robyn_Best, and thanks very much for posting back so we can rest easy about this in the future!

Is there a way to restore a previous version of a project template? I accidentally deleted a task with a dozen subtasks that I want to recover.

Hello @Evan_Barrientos1,
Usually you should receive an email for project deletions as Larry also mentioned above.
Otherwise you can reach out to and they will be able to assist.

Welcome to the Asana Community Forum @Leah_Pletcher!

I am not sure whether the support email still works, you can also find the steps on how to contact support here.
