Using API to retrieve deleted records

I am using a C# API to retrieve records that had been modified in the last hour. But now I need to retrieve records that had been deleted. Do you know if that possible?

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible.

If you “soft deleted” the records with a checkbox and a view that filters those records, then you could use the API to retrieve the “soft deleted” records. Then you could use the API to delete them for real.

Or, you do as I did with PowerImporter to sync Airtable to Webflow: fetch all the records and compare them to all the records you fetched last time to detect which ones were deleted.

Thank you for the idea, it is a good workaround. Hopefully, this could be implemented as a feature in the future. I am not using PowerImporter, but I’ll take a look at what it does.
