With the correct permissions, Agents can delete content from cases. This is helpful when customer communication contains personal information such as financial information and social security numbers. Erased information is removed from the case and won't be visible in replies.

Set the Permission

This feature is disabled by default. Enable agents to erase case content:
  1. Go to AdminCasesAgents
  2. Go to the "Erase Content" section and choose who should be allowed to erase content. You must be an administrator to edit this feature.

When the case is opened in the Agent Desktop, click the arrow from the interaction and select "Erase" from the dropdown.
