Undo Mark All As Read
If you accidentally mark all as read, you should be able to undo.
Now implemented in feedly: the blue confirmation box when you mark articles as read as an “undo” button which appears for 5 seconds.

Boom! My unread articles are gone! 5 seconds to undo something you didn't do on purpose?!? I would NEVER hit a "Mark all as read" button, so if I ever click it you should let me confirm my choice. I guess I hit some shortcut - even worse as I didn't notice :-(

Absolutely not completed. It's too easy to accidentally mark all as read, and the 5 second grace period is manifestly inadequate.
I'd like BOTH the ability to disable the mark all as read shortcut AND a permanent undo button.

I accidentally marked all as read, o...great there is a "undo" button, I moving pointer to it...ops the button gone...
thanks for leading my emotion up and down... you happy, having fun..
This is ridiculous. Just 5 seconds? For what? Why Feedly does not want to provide the users with the simplest solution, the permanent "Undo button"?
I swiped up looking for the settings menu option and was greeted by "all read".
What? I was on the menu bar on the left side of the screen, looking for settings because articles were in portatrait mode eveb though my phone was held in landscape mode.
i shook my phone to undo it, but nothing happened.
no warning, no undo button, nothing.
Reeder, here I come!
Yea but it's been longer than 5 seconds so I guess I'm screwed.
Seriously!? 5 seconds?!
I didn't even have time to realize what was going on not to mention moving my cursor from top to bottom of the screen when the box was gone together with over 500 of my unread articles and no way to undo it.
This needs to be a permanently visible option unless you put it there only to annoy people.
You can do better than this.
Are you freaking kidding me? This is NOT completed!!! You didnt solve the problem all of us have! Just give us the stupid "undo mark all as read" button! You are ruining our hard work.

Ah!.. there IS confirmation box, but it is not turned on by default.... I think. I had to turn it on to have that confirmation.

Why is this marked as COMPLETED? There is no undo or confirmation in the web client. I accidentally marked about 1000 articles as read.
There's no confirmation box on the ios app. This is not a helpful solution for those who interact on mobile devices.
Confirmation button does not solve the requested issue, which is "UNDO," not "Confirm Undo."
I accidently hit the "mark all as read" icon in a Feedly client and thought it would be a small issue going to the official website to undo my mistake, but was unpleasuantly surprised to find out that there's currently no easy way to do this. I was expecting a "check all" option and a button to "Mark as unread" like you typically find in an email client, but I was wrong. Feedly should implement something like this.
I didn't realize I'd hit the mark all as read button. I wasn't looking for a blue box. It vanished and I just lost 2 weeks of articles. I tried to find them in the recently read section, but they're not there. I think this option should require a confirm button.
It vanished before I could click on it.
No idea why feedly decided to mark all as read either, i didn't even press anything. Now i've lost about a dozen articles that I can't find.
A: needs to stick around for much longer.

While I agree that an undo button is useful, I have a few qualms with the new blue box:
- It is located badly, overlapping both some of my categories and some articles
- There is no transparency to it letting you see what is below
- There is no way to get rid of it faster than 5 seconds (e.g. with an 'x' in the top corner)
Would be great to see it developed a bit further to see these issues resolved.
How can you undo this stupid "mark all as read" in the iOS app?
I accidentally marked everything as read. Now I am totally lost. I have to go back through thousands of feeds to ind the ones I don't think I read.
There should be an easy way to undo mark all as read!!!

Thanks for implementing this useful feature.
I don't really understand why is it just available for 5 seconds. The undo should stay available until you perform the next action in feedly.
As someone below said:
Can't you move this stupid button under it's own menu? I go to hit refresh and accidentally hit this. If you refuse to make the button harder to press, then at least give us an undo.
This is so frustrating, and I can't believe feely is ignoring the obvious. For every one of these comments I bet there are a thousand people who have accidentally "marked as read". It's an easy fix, please do it.
