Searching for Items in the Recycle Bin
This articles outlines how to search for items in the recycle bin.
- Choose My recycle bin or All recycle bin from the drop-down list. Choosing My recycle bin searches for matches only in the items you deleted.
- Enter your search terms. Search terms are treated as separate words with an implied AND between them. For example, searching for bob jones returns items with bob and jones together but not bob smith whose email address is email@example.com. An implied wildcard is appended to your search terms so searching for bob returns any bob or bobby. Searches look for matches in the field displayed in the Name column of the Recycle Bin such as lead Name, Case Number, Contract Number, or Product Name. Note
- Click Search.
Remember: The Recycle Bin link in the sidebar lets you view and restore recently deleted records for 15 days before they are permanently deleted.
Your recycle bin record limit is 25 times the Megabytes (MBs) in your storage.
~ For example, if your organization has 1 GB of storage then your limit is 25 times 1000 MB or 25,000 records.
** If your organization reaches its Recycle Bin limit, there is an automatically removal of the oldest records if they have been in the Recycle Bin for at least two hours.
