Description

Hi All,

A professor who is an admin of a group would like to delete files in the library that she did not upload. Is it possible for a group admin to delete files that other group members have uploaded? If not, can we delete the files for her?

I think this may be related to the decision to forgo the creation of a item-level delete button in the upcoming release. This surfaces an important use case. As more professors use the library, there may be more need to delete individual items (especially the need for group admin to delete member uploads)

Is it possible for a group admin to delete files that other group members have uploaded?

Yes. The group admin should see an 'Edit' link next to each item in the library. Click it. Near the bottom of the page is a Delete button. If the user doesn't see this, please give me additional details (user info, URLs, etc) and I can try to figure out what's going on.

The Delete button exists, as noted above. What we are forgoing is the addition of a Delete button to the main Library interface. (Now you must click through to Edit before deleting.) See #13370.

Thanks for this info Boone. That's what I thought- that an admin was able to delete any file by clicking through the edit link. I will describe this process to the professor again to clarify and also ask for screenshots and the details needed to investigate further.

thanks
