    Delete list items in SharePoint

    January 29th, 2020

    From time to time, you may want to delete items from a SharePoint list for routine maintenance or some other reason. It's good to know that in case you accidentally delete an item, you can often recover it from the recycle bin. However, to be on the safe side, consider moving or archiving the items instead. You need Edit permission level or higher to delete items.
