If you’re not happy with a video you’ve submitted for a speech assignment, you can delete it from your recordings by moving it to the Trash. Videos you move to the Trash are visible only to you.

Keep in mind that you can’t delete a video if your instructor has already graded the assignment or given you feedback.

Delete a video

From the Recordings tab in the Soomo video recorder, identify the video you wish to delete. Now click the three dots on the right side of your selected video and select Move to Trash.
