Thumbnail view – Trash bin

The Trash bin is a SharinPix ability that temporarily stores the images deleted from a SharinPix album. 

If images are deleted accidentally and need to be recovered, retrieved or undeleted, the Trash bin can be used to restore those images.

Images deleted within the last 30 days can be restored from the Trash bin.

Using SharinPix Permission

The Trash bin ability can be enabled using a SharinPix Permission record. To do so follow the steps below:

  • Create/modify a SharinPix Permission record
  • On editing the record, enable the Trash bin ability by checking the Trash option from the Standard album function section as demonstrated below:
  • Enable the other required abilities/features
  • Click Save when done
  • Add the SharinPix Permission to the desired album

For more information about the SharinPix Permission object and how it is used, please refer to the following article:

Trash bin can also be enabled at an organisation level using the SharinPix Global Settings. Using this method, the Trash bin will be made available on all SharinPix albums by default. To do so:

  • Click on Settings from the top menu bar
  • Click on the button Edit Organization located on the top right
  • From the section Standard album function, check the option Trash (trash)
  • Click on Update Organization to save the changes

Using an Apex class

In case you are using an Apex class embedding SharinPix parameters, you will have to set the trash parameter to true in the SharinPix abilities as demonstrated in the code snippet below:

 Map<String, Object> params =new Map<String, Object> { 
            'abilities' => new Map<String, Object> { 
                'album_id' => new Map<String, Object> { 
                    'Access' => new Map<String, Object> { 
                        'see' => true,
                        'trash' => true
            'Id' => 'album_id'
Click to copy
