    Good point Cait!  Wrike can get very messy wrong versions of a file are added.  It'd be nice if we were able to clean this up, without having to delete the entire document versions. Please help us work better!!

    Hi Wrike! Being able to delete versions of a file would be H U G E. I work with a ton of teams and need to give feedback to them on various PDFs. Anytime I accidentally get my wires crossed and upload a file to the wrong task it's a headache to explain to people where to look. I know it's my own fault, but being able to delete at least the most recently uploaded version would be so great.

    It would be a great help, if I could delete a version of a file.

    100%, our team is uploading versions day to day and we literally hit a snag today because an incorrect version is in and now we can't remove it. When can we expect a solution? Thank you!

    I agree with others who have previously commented that the ability to delete a single file without losing ALL the versions would be very helpful. There are times when a file may be placed in the wrong area or uploaded before it's truly "ready" to be uploaded when a person may essentially want to undo the upload. (Ever hit Send on an email before it's truly "ready"? This may not be quite as potentially disastrous, but still...) We've had this happen twice recently and had no way of restoring the versions without going directly to the Wrike support team. I do like the ability to upload new versions and having the history, but it looks like there are several of us that feel there's a real need to add this ability to delete a single version of a file.

    We would definitely love to have the capability to delete just one specific version of an edited file.  We do internal proofing/approval as well as guest reviews, so this would come in handy.  Thanks for posting this!

    We need this SO badly! I made the mistake of uploaded a file to the wrong task, where it now sits at the top of the version list, and can't delete it without deleting all the previous versions of the correct file. Argh!!!!

    We need the ability to delete files in version control. Appears we currently do NOT have the ability to remove a file uploaded in error? Any humans using this program will occasionally need the ability to fix/edit errors. Let us know!

    I agree - our team could really use this! Not having the ability to remove the most recent version has lead to some big headaches for us. Thank you!

    Hi @All, thanks for your input here, I really like this idea 👍 All the feedback is passed to our Product team. +1's of the original suggestion help us assess its popularity. For now, I don't have an update to share with you, but I'll get back to you when I have news. Once the suggestion hits 60 votes, one of the Product Feedback statuses will be added to it.

    It might be a nice-to-have if the original uploader notified when this happens.

    Hi all, I think that restore of the file/version feature also would be helpful.

    Because right now there is no way to do it with admin rights.

    You have to ask for a Wrike support to do so

    Hi everyone, thanks for your continued support here 🙌

    For now, I've added the "Backburner" status here, which means that our Product team is interested, but the feature is not on the roadmap for the near future. I'll get back to you when that changes.

    Thanks for posting!

    Backburner? As pointed out above, human beings use this software and being able to fix a mistake is imperative. What do we need to do to get it moved up on the priority list?

    I agree. I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to delete a version -- most often the most recently uploaded one. It would really help us, and it seems like a function that should have been baked in from the get go. We are not alone in this desire. Please consider escalating again?
