Trying to delete an uploaded sample using the GUI and can't find any option to do it. Is there any way to delete or remove samples using the GUI? If not, how are sample removed?

Sample files can't be deleted once uploaded - but they can be "De-identified" (remove all values in the sample). Click on "Sample management" then "De-identify" and choose which columns to de-identify (you can choose some or all). You can then Disable the sample to stop it appearing when you go to assign samples.

The reason you cannot delete the sample outright is to keep the database consistent and cases / data would have to be removed if the sample itself is deleted.

Can you help with this problem?
