Permanently deleting closed file requests

Permanently deleting closed file requests

Explorer | Level 3

I would like to permanently delete closed file requests. An identical issue was opened and marked as solved 2 years ago, but the underlying issue was never actually addressed.

https:confused face:/www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Files-folders/Can-i-delete-permantly-the-file-requests/td-p/208852

I wanted to +1 this previous issue, but the reply button wasn't working. Moreover, because the previous issue is already (erroneously) marked as solved, I figured I might get more traction by opening a new discussion.

It's not erroneously marked as solved. Solved does not necessarily mean resolved to a person's satisfaction. On these forums it simply means that the post has received the proper response for the issue raised. In this case, the response provided by Zed is still correct.

File Requests still cannot be removed once closed. They will remain under Closed Requests indefinitely.

Hello

Is there any way to permanently delete "Closed requests" from the File requests page?

Thank you

Hey @jazzmeg1, kindly note that we’ve closed the original Solved thread for commenting, as this had been an older conversation that wasn’t active for a long time, however I’ve just moved your post in the follow-up discussion on the same inquiry. 
 
While this isn’t currently available Meg, we’re collecting & forwarding your interest on similar features that could enhance the way you’re interacting with Dropbox. Please let me know if you’d like me to move the follow-up thread to the Share an Idea section on your behalf,  where other Community members could upvote it & I’ll follow-up with you asap. 
 
(On a slightly separate note, I’m also cross-checking the specifics you had included on our second discussion & I’ll touch-base with you there shortly.)
 
Enjoy the rest of your day until we talk again!
