How to delete files uploaded to Midnight
With Midnight, you have the ability to upload files associated to your customers, estimates and orders within the respective modules. Over time, there may be certain files you no longer wish to maintain or there might be certain files you’d like to clear out in order to reduce the size of your database. Instead of having to locate each file one-by-one in the different modules, you have access to a File Management screen where you can quickly locate files and then delete them from your system.
The process requires access to Admin. We recommend verifying the files you wish to delete before removing them as once deleted, they cannot be recovered.
To delete attached files, click on Admin (the gear in the top-right hand corner of your screen). When the Admin Lists open, scroll down to File Management and select that option.
The File Management screen will show you all uploaded files in your Midnight database. You may locate files using several options, including module, document type, name and size. The screen allows you to search, filter and sort as needed. Once you have located the files you wish to remove, you have two options to delete files. One option is to click the Delete option on the right of each record you wish to remove.
The second option is select the records using the checkbox on the left and then use the “Delete Selected” button to delete all of the selected items.
Once you complete the function, the files will no longer be available in Midnight.
Before deleting, if you would like to save a backup of those files, use the “Download Selected” option after selecting the desired files to download a copy of the files.
