Delete content

You can delete content and supplementary content from your Content Repository.

Content — Any component relating to the subject matter of a class (Example — Questions, Text, Lessons, Assignments, Interactive Narratives, Units, etc.).

Supplementary content — Components that support the creation, structure, and implementation of content. Example — Themes, Policy Sets, Slide Templates, Course Modules.

Different types of content and supplementary content have different methods for deletion from the Content Repository.

TIP: Deleting content from a specific activity will still preserve it in its respective folder in the Content Repository (Example — a question is still available in the Questions folder of the Content Repository if it's deleted from an assignment). Check out Delete an assignment question or Delete lesson content.

NOTE: Content and supplementary content can't be deleted if it's in use. The content or supplementary content must first be removed from use within an activity in order to be deleted. ExamplePolicy Set A can't be deleted if it's applied to an assignment. Applying a different Policy Set (Policy Set B) to the assignment allows Policy Set A to be deleted.

NOTE: Inherited content (indicated by the shared icon The Shared Content icon) can't be deleted (Example — an assignment that's been inherited from a parent class by your child class).

NOTE: Deleting content that you've shared will delete it from your Content Repository but it remains available wherever it was shared to. To delete it from where it was shared to, you'll first have to change the sharing privileges and then delete the content from your Content Repository. Check out Share content.

NOTE: The following types of content are content containers:

  • Groups
  • Units

In order to delete these types of content, they must be empty (Example — all activities must first be deleted from a unit in order for the unit to be deleted).
