Delete a Report

Before You Begin

When you delete a report, before it is permanently deleted, it is moved to the Trash folder. While the report is in the Trash folder, it can no longer be run. However, you can still view the results of the report, or recover it. Once the report is permanently deleted, it cannot be recovered.

You can only delete a report if you are the owner or a user with an administrator account.

Deleted report results do not go to the Trash folder and can never be recovered.
