To delete files and folders from the Documents tool. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • To delete files and folders, 'Admin' on the Documents tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • Keep the following in mind when working with the Documents tool:

      • The tasks that you can perform are determined by the permission level that you've been granted for each tool. See What are the default permission levels in Procore? You may not always be assigned the same permission level on both your company's and a project's Documents tool. 
      • Access permissions are typically set by your company's Procore Administrator (or another contact at your organization who has been delegated the authority to administer a specific project and/or project tool).
    • If you delete a file by mistake or want to restore a file that you deleted, see Retrieve a File or Folder from the Recycle Bin. 
    • If you have uploaded the files to the project level you will not be able to move them to the Recycle Bin on the company level.
    • You will not be able to remove empty folders at the Company level if they were uploaded at the Project level.
