ARCHIVED: Deleting Adobe Connect meetings, recordings, and content

Note:

Adobe Connect, IU's previous web collaboration and conferencing system, became read-only on August 31, 2017, and will be fully retired on December 28, 2017. After a comprehensive pilot evaluation, Zoom has been selected as its replacement. For more, see About the Adobe Connect retirement.

UITS is currently converting all Adobe Connect recordings to MP4 format. For more, see How do I access and download my converted Adobe Connect recordings?

If you have meetings, recordings, and content that you are no longer using, follow the instructions below to delete them.

Deleting content uploaded to an Adobe Connect meeting

If you share content (e.g., PPT, PDF, JPG, FLV, MP3, or MP4) in a Share pod during an Adobe Connect meeting, it is stored on the Adobe Connect server until you delete the content or delete the Connect meeting room to which you uploaded it. To delete content uploaded to your Adobe Connect room, you must delete it in the Adobe Connect meeting room and in the Adobe Connect Manager.

Step 1: Delete the content from within the Adobe Connect meeting

  1. Enter your Connect meeting room as a Host.
  2. From the Pods menu, choose Manage Pods.
  3. To delete an individual file uploaded to the meeting room, find the filename in the list of pods, highlight it, and click Delete.

    To delete all content that is not currently loaded into a Share pod, click Select Unused, and then click Delete.

  4. Click Done to close the "Manage Pods" dialog box.

Step 2: Delete the content from the Adobe Connect Manager

  1. Log into the Adobe Connect Manager.
  2. Click the Meetings tab.
  3. Click the name of the meeting to which the content was uploaded.
  4. Click Uploaded Content.
  5. Check the box to the left of the content you wish to remove, and click Delete.
  6. On the confirmation screen, click Delete. The content will be permanently deleted from the Connect server.
