Deleting files

Files are either uploaded to Insightly directly or attached to emails that have been saved to Insightly. If you delete an email, its file attachments will also be deleted.

It's not possible to delete files in bulk, so here is how you find them and delete them one at a time:

  1. Go to the Home tab, click Activity Type, and select Files.
  2. Click the file title to access the record containing the file. 
  3. Click the trash can icon next to the filename.
