how i can get back an estimate that i erase for error?


Great to have you here in the Community, vicoaviles.

This time, there isn’t an option to restore an estimate once mistakenly erased.

However, you’ll need to recreate it and use the Audit Log to get the information of the deleted estimate. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Gear icon at the upper right.
  2. Select Audit Log under Tools.
  3. Select the appropriate User, Date and Events filters on the Filter drop-down.
  4. Click Apply.
  5. Find the deleted transaction by pressing Ctrl + F and type deleted.
  6. Click View under the History column (see the second screenshot below).

The first screenshot below will show you the first two steps. 

Once you have the details, you can re-enter the estimate as new with its original transaction date.

I’m adding this article for more information about using the Audit Log.

The steps above will help get back your deleted estimate, vicoaviles.

I'm only a post away if have any other concerns. Take care always.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
