Is there a way I can do a bulk delete of emails and documents?

You can bulk delete documents from FYI, however the user's permission level will determine the method used to delete documents, and the number of documents that can be deleted at one time.

For information on user permission levels refer to Managing Users.

Note: Some emails and Documents cannot be deleted, for example, if they are locked or being edited. Refer to Why can I not Edit or Delete an email or document?

Standard Users

Emails and documents can be bulk deleted from any list, including your In Tray.

  1. Checkmark the documents/emails you want to delete or click the checkbox in the column heading to 'Select 50'.
  2. Click Delete to delete the selected documents/emails.
    Note: If the Delete button isn't available, some documents may be locked or unable to be deleted. Refer to Why can I not Edit or Delete an email or document?

FYI Admins

In addition to using the method above, an FYI Admin can also use Bulk Update to delete multiple emails and documents.

  2. Click the Bulk Update button to open the Bulk Update drawer.
  3. Tick the Delete checkmark.
