How to delete an item

  2. Navigate to the item you wish to remove

  3. Select the item by clicking on it (in some clients, you may want to click on View) to open the details view.

  4. Click Delete.

  5. A confirmation prompt will appear, asking you if you really want to send the item to the Trash. Take a moment to review and make sure you're removing the correct item.

  6. Finally, click Yes to confirm and delete the item.

Move an item from your Organization vault back to your Individual vault

Note: Only members with admin permissions can move items from the Organization vault back to their personal vaults.

  1. Go to Organizations > Vault

  2. Navigate to the item you wish to move

  3. Click on Options, and select Clone

  4. In the new Item window that appears, change Ownership from the Organization vault to your email (ex. johnsmith@company.com)

  6. Return to the original item in Organizations > Vault

  7. Click on Options, and click Delete

  8. A confirmation prompt will appear, asking you if you really want to send the item to the Trash. Take a moment to review and make sure you're removing the correct item.
