Enable Recycle Bins

How to Enable Recycle Bins

  1. On the Administrator Panel, under Content Management, click Content Area Management.
  2. Click Manage Recycle Bins.
  3. In the Use Recycle Bin field for the desired content area, click Yes.
  4. If enabling recycle bins for the institution or library content area, in the Default Quota field, select Unlimited or select Limited and type the desired quota limit. A value of "-1" indicates that no quota has been set for that recycle bin.

    The quota for the individual recycle bins in the users, courses, or organizations content areas is shared with the quota of the parent folder, which is set in Default Folder Creation Settings.

  5. Click Submit. Because this process does not complete immediately, in email is sent to administrators when settings changes are complete.
