Backup/Restore Events

Recently, a new WA admin mistakenly deleted our "gala" event with over 100 registrants - just a few days before the event.

Currently, WA Support cannot restore the event (or any events) - nor will a site backup recover the events. At best, WA Support Level II is hoping to recover some data...

This situation is probably not significant with respect to frequency. However, depending on the Event it can have a significant impact on a non-profit collecting funds, managing an event, and the perception regarding same.

Clearly, this situation can and has put WA and folks supporting same in a bad position. IMHO, being able to restore Events is a critical need for all - especially when the unknowing shoot themselves in the foot.

Please help raise the attention level of this most important & needed WA feature - ability to restore events.

    Events are at the core of what most organizations do, so the data associated with them should be treated as a major item requiring data integrity. Allowing WA support to restore lost events should be a high priority.
