Deleting Folders

Table 170. Availability - Legacy plans


Overview

All users except collaborators can delete folders by sending them to the Recycle bin. Only admins can permanently delete folders.

When you delete a folder that has tasks, subtasks, subfolders, and subprojects:

  • If those items are only located in that folder then they're deleted when the parent folder or project is deleted.

  • If those items are stored in additional locations, then they'll continue to live in those additional locations even after the folder is deleted.

Delete a folder

Deleting a folder moves it to your Recycle bin, where it can be permanently erased or restored. This can be done in two ways.
