    Hi Julia, I can definitely see how this would be helpful if you have a lot of items you need to delete. I was wondering if this was a situation that came up often or if it was more of a one-time thing?

    Hi Stephanie! It’s often...in fact, I have more to get rid of this week, but am dreading the process because I know how long it’ll all take me. Our folders are customized per ‘account’ & are ‘mobile’ so we move/delete them as necessary.

    Hi Julia, let me jump in for Stephanie here. That's an interesting use case, thanks for sharing! I'm curious whether this process calls for actually deleting, or whether an archiving solution would be useful too?

    Hi Anastasia! Archiving would be of no use as these folders/projects are accounts that we no longer need to keep track of. So mass deletion would be ideal. TY!

    This would be a great feature not only for deleting, but for mass-selecting folders or projects (as you can with tasks). We have a number of tagging systems set up, and it would be great to be able to select and tag several projects at once, rather than one-by-one.

    Any ideas of how we could implement this?

    Thanks!

    @Carolanne I understand! I don't have a workaround I can offer at the moment but if I do, I'll pop back here. Would love to hear from others if they have a way of doing this.

    As a new user of Wrike I'm finding that there are many missing features at the project level. Mass deleting is just one of them. I vote to have a way to do this soon, :-)

    Would prefer the initial view to be a blank circle (don't like to see the tick)

     

    However, shame you still insist in messaging being oldest first (same as this feedback page)  Wrike you are not listening to your users !

    I’d like to see an option to mass delete. Our use case is that our creative teams intake form creates a folder containing a number of small sub projects. We need to be able to delete the unused sub projects easily.

    At the end of every quarter once we have backlogged and archived to our server I am reminded about how much I wish mass delete feature existed. Is there any way this will come into fruition?

    Really wish you'd have included the feature to be able to mass delete projects.

    I just manually deleted, one-by-one, 710 projects since they were wrongly imported...

     

    Being able to mass-edit projects is as essential as mass-editing tasks, so I urge you to consider to include this into future product releases.

    For a large enterprise such as ours, this would help greatly!

    Here's an optional work-around that's slightly quicker than deleting each folder/project individually:

    1. Create a "Delete Me" folder adjacent to the batch you want to get rid of.

    2. Drag all the folders/projects you're looking to trash into the new folder

    3. Delete the "Delete Me" folder

    Basically, dragging items into an existing folder is quicker than the deletion process, so it can save a lot of time for larger scale deletion projects (until a more logical solution is developed by Wrike for this issue!).

    Hey Rick Burtzel, thank you for the workaround! I would also recommend removing these projects/folders from any other folders they may be a part of, so that no copies remain anywhere else.

    Thank you everyone for all of the feedback and use cases! They help our Product team during their conversations about future implementations for the product. I'll keep you posted on any updates.
