Delete documents in AODocs

Users can delete documents from an AODocs library (if they have permission).

When a user deletes a document, it goes to the AODocs library trash and stays there for the defined library retention period. It is then permanently deleted. Learn more: Manage the retention period of deleted files.

During the retention period, library administrators can:

  • permanently delete the document
  • restore the document
