Deleting files and folders

  3. Clicking the Delete button, 
  4. Confirming the action by clicking the Delete Files button.

How to delete folders

An administrator of SuiteFiles can delete a folder (only one folder at a time) and all of the content within that folder (subfolders and files). This is done by:

  1. Navigating to the folder to be deleted,
  2. Click the three dots (...) to the right of the folder name,
  3. Clicking the Delete button, 
  4. Confirming the delete action by clicking the Delete Folder button.

Deleting tips for Standard users

While you might not have the freedom to delete items from SuiteFiles, Standard users without Delete permissions can move their unwanted files and folders into a  Trash or Deleted Items folder that has been created in your SuiteFiles site. Those with Delete permissions can be notified and delete the files and folders periodically. 

See  How to move or copy files for steps on how to do this.
