Delete Bucket

Once the bucket is no longer needed, it can be deleted.

Shared Bucket

If a bucket has been marked "Shareable" (formerly "Publicly Visible") it can be retrieved by any staff person who has the bucket ID. The bucket ID can be found at the top of the screen in the URL of the bucket page or in the text right above the table. The bucket owner can share the ID with others.

Because each bucket has a unique URL, you could also bookmark shared buckets in your browser.
