Allow managed users to delete content

I just created multiple managed users under my Plex account. I found out that they can no longer delete shows. Is there a permission somewhere to allow managed users to delete content?

    This needs to be an option.

    If my wife wants to delete her shows that no one else will watch, I should be able to let her account have this privilege. We were sharing my account, but we watch some of the same shows so my unwatched episodes then get marked as watched.

    +1 one on this... it's actually a show stopper for me. I don't want to manage her library

    +1 Please add option for managed users to be able to delete. I agree with m3scott about wanting my wife to be able to delete her own shows.

  • MolsonFLMolsonFL Members, Plex Pass Posts: 1 Plex Pass

    +1 please. Same here. Wife has no need for an actual Plex account. I'm left having to delete the shows that only she watches.

    Thank you

    +1 would love it if wife could delete her tv shows after watching. Other wise she uses my account. gggeeerrrrr.....

  • devertdevert Members, Plex Pass Posts: 1 Plex Pass

    +1 for all the same reasons noted above. I'm a new Plex Pass user and this is one of the first features I found myself looking for.

  • locksworthlocksworth Members, Plex Pass Posts: 12 Plex Pass

    +1 here too

  • SteveBezansonSteveBezanson Members, Plex Pass Posts: 2 Plex Pass

    I’ll add my voice to that suggestion. I have 4 users, all with different content. Damned if I want to manage theirs. I’ve worked around it using file system shares & rights to allow them to delete at the folder level but it’s rather inelegant and downright inconvenient, especially when they blow away the wrong files/folders.

  • bjhillebjhille Members, Plex Pass Posts: 15 Plex Pass

    +1 - Make it a check box like allow sync'ing, etc. I am also a new Plex Pass user and was surprised this isn't already there.
