  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's RFIs tool.
  • Prerequisites:
    • The RFI that you want to retrieve must be in the Recycle Bin. See Delete an RFI.
  • Limitations:
    • To give project teams the ability to restore any deleted item, the Recycle Bin cannot be emptied.

    • If the RFI was in the 'Closed' status, the RFIs status remains 'Closed'.
    • If the  RFI was in the 'Draft' status, the RFIs status remains as 'Draft'.
