Trash Can

Deleting content sends it to the digital workplace's Trash Can. Once in the Trash Can, content will remain there for 30 days before being permanently deleted. During this 30 day retention period, administrators can recover the content, restoring it and any nested content to their previous location. This functionality provides a way of recovering content that was accidentally deleted.

Accessing the Trash Can

  • Workplace administrators can access the Trash Can from the workplace's Control Panel. 
  • Space administrators can access a limited view of the Trash Can from the Space Administration Panel. This view of the Trash Can contains only content that has been deleted from the space. 

Content in the Trash Can

While in the Trash Can, Content will not be counted against the digital workplace's storage limit. However, the URL and name used by the deleted content will be reserved until it's permanently deleted. 

When viewing the Trash Can, 10 items are displayed at a time and further items can be browsed using the arrow buttons found below the list of content. To aid in finding a particular item in the Trash Can, its contents can be sorted by who created it (Created by), who deleted it (Deleted by), and its date of deletion (Date deleted).
