Hi, is there a way to undo changes on Activity logs view?
As of now, I think the only option to undo is the popup shown by Monday when you just made a modification on an item, once you ignored the popup there’s no other way to do the undo but to manually check the activity log.
It would be good if under activity log, an option is available to undo specific 1 or more actions at once.
I was looking for a feature where you could undo more than once or if there was something like a version history where would could go back to a previous version. There’s the “Undo” pop up as well as the change log but it cannot undo more than one action.
Is this something that could be possible for a future implementation?
Hi Everyone, thank you for your request and suggestions. The development team had a look at this request and while they are considering making some improvements with the undo option, it’s difficult to say if it will affect the activity log.

As part of our new feature request process, we are taking top request and discussing them with our product team. Read more about the new feature request process here.
I have started using Monday.com three weeks ago (after having used Smartsheet for almost two years) and I was very very very surprised to say the least that the ‘Undo’ or ‘Restore’ capability in the Activity Log is not an option in Monday.com. It is paramount to have this enabled, as everybody (even the most expert Monday.com user can make mistakes.
It is part of the learning process to try things out before confirming changes, so I would request with urgency that this capability is integrated in the Monday.com features.
We added an update to let you know that this feature is now under consideration and our team is working on it. This is part of our new feature feedback process. Check out the new process and keep voting for your features since they do impact our development decisions.
I am using large data in Monday.com. It looks like something can be undone, producing a green notification at the top to undo within a minute. However, if I change the content in a cell, I cannot undo this! It means if I make a mistake eg type the wrong text into the wrong row, I loose the original data forever!
I currently take regular exports of my board so I have a previous version but undo is a very basic ability that all programs have…
We hear you and recognise there is demand for this feature. Are you able to confirm if the existing feature request here, matches your request? This way we can merge the two, to consolidate votes and put greater emphasis on this need
I’ve been testing the app, and it’s ok. The problem is that it relies in the (broken) activity log feature. I have been working for the past 30 minutes, updating dates and stuff like that. Nothing got recorded.
I then accidentally clicked on the “delete my cell data without warning or undo for no practical reason”. Information gone.
Hi Jorge, LogBack relies on the monday activity logs API. If you’re facing any problems with your account, such as actions not being recorded in the activity log, I suggest contacting monday for support.
After hearing all your feedback and considering different ways to go about this feature, I am excited to share that adding more undo capabilities has been added to our roadmap. Our development team have already started developing the undo feature in the activity lab and are working on adding more undo capabilities - such as people and file columns.
Thank you for joining us in our development process and we are looking forward to hearing more great ideas from our community.
While that’s good news, from the way you word this it seems you are still moving in the weird, non-standard Undo implementation of the few items that allow undo at the moment - i.e. the floating bubble that lets you undo a few choice things.
Every other app in the world has a standard undo feature, with a standard history, standard keystrokes, etc.
Anything you do in the app should have an undo, simple as that. If you can change data, you need to be able to change it back.
