Delete Folders and Files (Android)

Also available on    


To delete folders and files from an Android device.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • To delete files and folders, 'Admin' level permission on the project's Documents tool.
    • To delete files and folders as a user with 'Standard' or 'Read-only' level permission on the project's Documents tool, the 'Delete Files and Folders' granular permission must be enabled on the permission template associated with your user account on the project. See Grant Granular Permissions in a Permission Template.
      Note: Permission levels are tool-specific. For example, you can have 'Read-only' level permissions on the Company level Documents tool and 'Admin' level permissions on a project's Documents tool. Please keep this in mind when you are looking to perform tasks at different levels.
  • Additional Information:
    • You must also have permission to view the file/folder. See Manage Permissions for Files and Folders.
    • Anything you delete will automatically be put into your 'Recycle Bin' folder at the end of your file tree. If you delete a file or a folder by accident, you may navigate to the Recycle Bin to retrieve the file/folder by clicking on the download-icon.png icon.
      • 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.


  1. Navigate to your project's Documents tool on an Android device.
  2. Navigate to the file or folder you want to delete.
  3. Tap the menu icon in the upper right-hand corner.
  4. Tap Delete.

  5. Tap Yes on the pop-up to confirm you want to delete the item.
