Can I disable the "Delete file for everyone" message?

New member | Level 2

I am getting the error message that requires me to OK "delete for everyone" when I want  to remove a file (see below). I saw the discussion board on this topic - the screen shots in the thread I read show an option to remove the message in the future. I do not see that option displayed. I need to remove this message. How?

Hey there @maxvan,

The notification you're seeing is because the file you're deleting is shared with other users. The discussions I believe you're referring to is the "Delete everywhere" message that has been discussed previously on the Community.

The "Delete everywhere" message can be disabled by checking the appropriate option within the dialogue box of the message. However, there currently isn't a way to disable the specific notification that you are seeing there.

I've made sure to pass this along to our dev team for review to see if this can be implemented in a future version of the desktop app. Sorry that I can be of much more help here!

Let me know if you have any other questions - Thanks!

Hi Daphne,

 

Thank you. Unfortunately there is no checkbox within the dialogue box I see in the desktop version. This message appears everytime I delete a file which indeed is shared with other users. What solution exists to solve this? It is very time consuming to click repeatedly on this dialogue box.

Thank you

Hey @maxvan,

As I mentioned previously, there isn't an option to disable to notification you're seeing there at the moment. The "Delete everywhere" notification that has been discussed on the Community does have this option. However the notification you're seeing is a different one that currently doesn't have the option to disable it.

Sorry that I can't help any further with this!

OK  I hope this gets fixed soon. It is new to me - perhaps because I upgraded to Windows 10 recently.
