File manager delete multiple uploaded files


#1

Hello everyone,

How is it possible to delete multiple uploaded files in the file manager? Currently, I don’t save the file URL in a Thing and the file is also not attached to a Thing. Therefore, an API workflow is probably not a solution in my case :frowning:

In the file manager it should be possible selecting multiple files and delete them at all.

Thank you for any advice.

Oliver

Hi,

Yeah unfortunately if the file is not attached to a thing in your data types, then you will have to go into the ‘File Manager’ under ‘Data’ to see what files need deleting there and manually go through them one by one.

I’ve mentioned this a few times, but it would certainly be handy if there was a checkbox to each item/file for multi-deleting on the list.

Thanks for the prompt reply. That’s quite bad for me. Hopefully bubble will add such a feature in the file manager as soon as possible.

Yes would defo be a welcome addition.

I’m tempted to post as a ‘Idea’ on the forum as I don’t think it exists as a standalone requested Idea. Will do shortly as there is a need for it.
