Can I delete a Project or Folder?

Modified on Wed, 10 Apr 2024 at 11:15 AM

Under certain conditions, Projects or Folders can be hidden or even deleted. However, the latter should only be done after consultation and, if possible, after a previous backup, as deletion is irreversible.

Private Projects/Folders case

  • A user has got the option to either hide or even permanently delete the content found in the My private projects folder. However, this applies only if the user is not part of a group that prevents private projects.
  • Because these contents will be permanently deleted once the process is confirmed, a warning window will pop-up and provide the option to download the projects as PDF files before deleting them.

Group Projects/Folders case

  • Deletion of Group data is prohibited by default.

How to permit deleting content in a group

  1. Go to Sidebar > Groups.

  2. Select the group you wanna change and click on Manage Permissions. (Only Administrators can do this)

  3. Unselect "Prevent group members from deleting content".  

How to hide/delete a Project/Folder

  1. Go to Sidebar > Projects.

  1. Open the Folder where the Project/Folder you would like to delete is located.
  2. Hover over the Project/Folder and then click on the (...) icon that appears to the right. Click Delete.

  1. A warning will appear and ask you to write DELETE before you are able to delete the project/folder.

If deletion is prohibited, you will no be able to see the button Delete in the dropdown menu.
