Hi @dianedetoeuf, that’s a great question! We’re actually working on a bulk delete feature to remove many attachments at once which will make this a lot easier going forward. We can share how this will work in practice. The goal though is to make it really easy to remove these attachments – either to free up space or to ensure that respondents’ privacy is protected.
If you’re looking for a more efficient way to delete all media files associated with a form in KoBoToolbox, you may consider the following steps:
Bulk Media Deletion:
Check if KoBoToolbox has introduced a feature for bulk media deletion since my last update. Some platforms periodically update their features, and bulk operations may be one of them.
Explore the possibility of using the KoBoToolbox API. The API might provide more flexible options for bulk operations, including media deletion. Be cautious when using the API, and ensure you understand its capabilities and limitations.
KoBoToolbox Forum or Community:
Visit the KoBoToolbox forum or community discussions. Other users might have faced similar challenges and could share workarounds or solutions. The community is often a valuable resource for learning about advanced use cases.
