Sitefinity 7.1 will include Recycle Bin, a feature which will lists all deleted content in a dedicated section of the Backned, plus the ability to restore deleted items.
We are interested in knowing more about your requirements in regards to this feature, and more specifically:
We look forward to receiving your feedback!

For me, widgets are a must and administrators should have the ability to see all items and see who put them in there. Ability to set who has access to remove items from the bin would be nice, but admins should be priority.
+1 for the other extras that Steve outlined.
One of the features I would love to see in SF, a bit off topic to a degree, is a way of integrating the Widgets code that we see in thunder, but being able to have them into TFS or SVN, so even that when we are using thunder the content would be controlled by one of those source code providers.
I rather have someone purge it then have it cleared after some days. Someone deletes a page and goes on vaction or so. But I could agree that it would be nice if you could delete all contents deleted n days or older.
Let me start of by saying this is wonderful news.
To me the most important thing is to prevent my clients from making damage. So Design - Pages and Widget would be on my wish list.
Access to recycle bin to me would make sense for
- all administrators
- to whom has deleted an item (they should only see their items. If they can delete it they should be able to restore it.
Will there be a clean-up possibility. Like empty recycle bin?
This would be nice. Now the history is filling up the database without much we can do. (hoping 7.2 will bring the option to limit the numbers of history that are kept.
And I would not want to have the same 'problem' with recylce bin.
As I have in other CMS that I use, for me the most interest regarding the trash can is also about pages (with all on it) and various contents.
About security, I suppose that every one must be able to restore it's own deleted stuff and the admin any stuff. If it is also a purge (empty etc.) facility I think that it must be available only to admin.
I don't know if this available now (if is, sorry), but I find nice to have a property, let say, "Visible" for pages and specially for content (e.g. we have added a news or event item, but not sure if is something sure, so we need to keep the item invisible to the time when is approved)
I would like to see which user deleted the page (Date/Time etc..).
All Administrator roles.
Something that I think would be beneficial would be the ability to define a purge setting to allow the admin to setup the amount of time that the pages would stay in the recycle bin (perhaps in days).
Okay we need to just make a distinction here...widget TEMPLATES need to be in the bin...not widgets on pages. That exists already as revision history, and the person who edited the page is listed in the history already.
I think there was another post about an audit log feature, I think thats what some of you guys are wanting instead? Can't really put a widget in the recycle bin as its not technically content.
...also @Kali...dash widget for recyclebin activity would be slick too
This is closely related to the recycle bin feature -- would like to see the possibility to associate the delete action to a workflow. So, deletes would follow the same approval process as any other content publishing.
And thanks for the valuable input! Your ideas all make sense and we’ll try to incorporate them in the development. Our plan for phase 1 is to focus on Pages and Content as these are the most critical areas where recycle bin is needed.
Please, let us know how you’d prioritize the requirements below. In your opinion, which ones are MUST for iteration one, and which ones can wait for next iterations:
I look forward to receiving your feedback.
Let me know if further clarification is needed.
