Mass delete documents in Content Workspaces, DataLoader

Chatter & Files

We have to delete something eventually from Content Workspaces.  Current, the user has to the ability to delete only one document at a time, all that requires about 4 slow clicks.  This is not going to work.

If you look in the help, you'll find an article (it works): 
"How do I mass move or add documents to a Workspace in Content?" 

But where is the other article on how to mass delete?

Salesforce (in a case) informed me that this is not implemented yet.  It is a little hard to sell the idea that we can go live if we know we will be stuck with everything we upload eventually paying a higher rate for data storage.
So, please add mass delete and the official supported method of doing this in another article:
 "How to mass remove or delete documents in a Workspace Content"

by the way: There are several content related objects out there, I already gummed up a workspace messing with it.

Thanks for building complete and well-supported products...

    Hi Chadrakantha, yes we do read the comments! I don't have an update for this particular Idea, but it sounds like there might be a workaround in the comments. Let me know if those help.
