Delete a report

How to remove and permanently delete reports.
In Looker Studio, removing an asset is temporary. You can restore assets that you've removed. Deleting an asset is permanent.

Remove a report from the home page list

Removing a report moves it to the trash. That report no longer appears in the Reports tab of the Looker Studio home page, and the report won't be accessible by you or anyone else.

  1. Sign in to Looker Studio.
  2. Locate the report you wish to remove.
  3. Hover over the report name, then on the right, click More options More options..
  4. Click Remove.  Remove.

On the Looker Studio home page, a user hovers their cursor over a report name in the reports list to access the inline More options three-dot menu for the report.

Restore a report from the trash

Reports and data sources you remove remain in the trash. You can restore them at any time by visiting the TRASH tab on the home page.

  1. Sign in to Looker Studio.
  2. On the left, select Remove.  TRASH.
  3. On the top, select the Reports tab.
  4. Locate the report you want to restore.
  5. Hover over the report name, then on the right, click More options More options..
  6. Click Restore. Restore.

The report appears in the home page, and anyone with whom you've shared it will again have access.

Permanently delete a report

Data sources in the Trash continue to exist unless you permanently delete them:

  1. Sign in to Looker Studio.
  2. On the left, select Remove.  TRASH.
  3. On the top, select the Reports tab.
  4. Locate the report you want to delete.
  5. Hover over the report name, then on the right, click More options More options..
  6. Click Remove. Delete forever.
Important! You can't undo this action.

A note about version history

Restoring a report to a previous version restores any data sources that you've removed. However you may need to fix the data source connection. See Manage added reports and data sources for more information.

Version history can't restore any data sources that have been permanently deleted.
