What is Procore's Recycle Bin?

Answer

In Procore, a Recycle Bin is a tool-specific location where certain items are moved after they are deleted. Items moved into a recycle bin cannot be permanently deleted or removed from Procore. However, in some Procore tools, you may have the ability to retrieve or restore items from the recycle bin. 

There is no limit on the amount of data that can be stored in a recycle bin. Once an item is sent to a recycle bin, only users with 'Admin' level permissions on the tool have permission to see the items in the recycle bin.
