Deleting sheets or plans is a necessary workflow for many BIM 360 Docs Teams, but how do you delete sheets or plans in the Plans and Shop Drawing folder? To help you overcome this hurdle, we’ve put together a quick step-by-step guide.

To begin, it’s necessary to know that within 360 Docs the following containers for data are:

Plans – Managing, publishing and reviewing the latest set of construction documents, in both 2D and 3D formats.

Shop Drawings – Managing, sharing, and reviewing drawings and models that are developed by the trade subcontractors and fabricators during submittal process.

Now that you know where to look, the steps you will need to take to delete sheets or plans in each container are slightly different, and are as follows:

Deleting Sheets in Plans Section

  1. Under Plans section, select the project.
  2. In the listing of plans, select the sheets that you wish to delete, more than one sheet may be selected. 3D models can be deleted also.
  3. On the top bar, select Delete.



Deleting Sheets in Shop Drawings

  1. Under Shop Drawings section, you may see subfolders, if so, select the subfolder where the sheets reside.
  2. In the listing of documents, select the document(s) you wish to delete.
  3. On the top bar, select Delete.



Just as important as knowing how to delete sheets, is knowing how to restore them.

  1. While in the folder where the sheet or plan was located, select Restore Subfolder (upper right hand portion of the screen.



  1. Select the plans or sheets you wish to undelete, then select Restore.
