Multi-select in file manager to delete uploaded files


It would be greatly useful if we could multiple select files that have been uploaded through the editor or not attached to a thing as a data type under ‘Data’ > ‘File manager’.
Going through the list and clicking the ‘Delete’ and then confirming for each item is very time consuming when dealing with large lists e.g. deleting old image assets from a site re-design.

If we could have a checkbox next to the filename where we can multi-select and then a master delete button that would be great. Understandable there could be a limit e.g. max selection at a time 20 items, so that its not to hard on the server to process the request.




Just come up against this and it is frustrating, I understand this means a process for deleting multiple files from s3 which is not easy process, but this would be a small feature with big results for users!



agree 100%



Does anyone have news about this issue?



From my understanding nothing is in the works at the moment to implement this feature e.g. on the Bubble roadmap, who knows might be added in soon.

But at this time, its still a single delete operation unfortunately, within the app’s file manager.
