Hello i was wondering what would happen if i delete a dataset, is there a way to revert data to a certain point in time ?

you need to backup your own data using the CLI
sanity dataset export datasetname
and then restore that data using the import command
sanity dataset import datasetname.tar.gz datasetname

We do not keep backups. You could technically use the History API to try to revert changes within document, but if it’s deleted entirely that’s a no go. It’s best to use the method Parker mentioned on a regular basis.
