Deleting Files from Trash




  • Isabel Messore

    Hello Patrick Ryan,

    While this is not currently a feature, it has been highly requested. I'm going to add you to the request ticket for this and share your feedback with our product development team.

    The more traction a request has, the greater likelihood for prioritization and thus implementation. That being said, if anyone else feels they'd benefit, please consider adding a comment / voting and I can add you folks to the ticket as well!

    Being able to delete a single file from the Trash would be really nice. Especially when creating the Linked File Report. I have an untitled file in the trash and it is not linked to the my current document but when I run the report it shows up on the additional linked files page with zero sources/occurrences.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Thank you for voicing your support of the idea above. I've added you to the idea ticket referenced here so you can be updated on any progress regarding this proposal. Please feel free to follow up if you have any additional questions.

    I'd also like to be able to delete files individually. As there are several of us using the same Workspace, no one can take the initiative to delete everything, so more and more useless files accumulate in the recycle garbage can.

  • Melissa Juntunen

    This is something I would like to see too. I have files going back over a year in my trash. I would like to be able to permanently delete older items or automatically have items that are more than X months old deleted as there are thousands of files in our trash.
