Description ytn01 2012-04-23 09:25:03 UTC
The delete action for multiple projects currently shows prompt for each project deletion.
This process is OK when used for 2-3 items but as the number of selection goes up, it gets annoying.

It would be ideal to show a prompt with options to apply for all projects & run the action in batch.
Or even make a more customizable option set so user can make a choice for all or individual projects and run the task in a single batch run.

May be possible using ExtendedDelete. A very low priority; if you are really deleting that many projects, it would be simpler to close them in the IDE (or just shut down the IDE), then delete from the command line or whatever platform shell.
Comment 2 ytn01 2012-05-04 09:24:35 UTC
Yes, its certainly possible to delete the projects outside of the IDE, but I don't think thats the Smart way to do it.
