Need a Sharepoint trigger when a list item is deleted

It seems like basic functionality to have a trigger when a Sharepoint list item is deleted, but somehow, that functionality doesn't exist. I'm not sure exactly how you could have created a trigger for when a list item is created and NOT realized, 'hey, maybe we need to have a trigger for when the item is deleted, too'!

Status: Completed

Good news - this item is completed, you can read about it in this blog post : - there are now triggers for both When an Item is delete and When a file is deleted. Thanks!

Throwing another vote into the "please immplement something" hat.


Something needs to handle this sort of event, be it a trigger or make it a flag in the list item modified (deletion is nothing more than a kind of modification, eh?)  lol


Seriously however, I need this...

Please can we get this added or have a way to detect if an item is deleted in the update trigger.

This has been a long time coming now, suprised there is no update by Microsoft as this is a fairly standard request.
