After accidentally deleting a field, we can restore it via undelete or snapshot.
HOWEVER, the deleted field was referenced by a ‘last modified date’ field. When the deleted field is restored from Trash, the last modified date is set to the current date/time for all records. I understand this is expected behavior. but I’m looking for a workaround.
Using the snapshot, we can recover the original ‘last modified date’, but there are two remaining problems:
- We want to continue to use the original base as it has various integrations that we’d rather not rebuild; if we do an export from the restored snapshot and import into the original base, the last modified time will be off again.
- any records that were changed after the snapshot must be edited again after restoring from snapshot and will not have the accurate modified time stamp.
Is there a way to keep the time stamps for the restored records on import?
And is there a way to fix the time stamp for those recently updated records?
