I accidentally deleted an estimate. How do I recover it?

Let's ensure you can find the information on your deleted estimate, @Nroskos.


Currently, we're unable to recover it automatically. What we can do is to recreate it manually. We can check the Audit Log to get the details needed to reinstate the deleted transaction.


To access the Audit Log:


  1. Go to the Gear icon.
  2. Under Tools, select Audit Log.
  3. Locate the estimate and click the View link under the History column.
  4. From there, you can re-enter the transaction using the information with its original transaction date.


To learn more about this, please check this article on restoring deleted transactions: Use the audit log to re-enter deleted transactions.


Additionally, you can visit this article to guide you in converting an estimate to an invoice for future reference: Convert an estimate into an invoice in QuickBooks Online.
