For team and enterprise accounts, your admin can set an expiration date on all of your team’s content. They can choose to move the content to the trash bin when expired or permanently deleted. Make sure to select if you’d like the team’s content to be moved directly to the trash bin after expiring or to be deleted permanently.

Admins can access these features by:

  • Going to their web dashboard and clicking on their team settings
  • Select the ‘files tab’
  • Select the expiration date you wish to choose and hit ‘update’
