Deleting and restoring project items


Click to view an item: If you're an admin, you'll see the option to delete or edit a post. Non-admins can only delete or edit items they've created. They can only delete or edit their comments on a post for 15 minutes.

Only admins can edit or delete items they did not create.

Email signature attachments will be ignored as long as they are GIF, JPG, smaller than 5KB, and follow the "image00#" filename format. Images beginning with "~WRD" or "compose-unknown-contact" are also ignored.

To-do lists, tasks, and events

Hover over the title of a list or a task. You'll see a trash can icon pop up to the left. Click on that that to delete.
