Recycle Bin

Applications, Salesforce Files & Content


When things go in the Recycle bin, we cannot permanently delete selected items from the Recycle bin.  We have the only option to delete the 'Entire Organization’s Recycle Bin'.  Some folks in the company might want to recover what they have deleted.  Can we please we have a choice to pick which ones we want to delete permanently from the recycle bin?

Thanks for the idea! Why do you want to choose which items will be permanently deleted and which ones will remain? We typically hold items for 30 days or based on a first in-first out model (depending on volume).  As a result, users have some time to decide whether to undelete a record or the admin may if they have modify all data.
