Hello @Ken_T 

I found a few ideas that may be what you are looking for! I would recommend voting on them and leaving your comment/suggestions.

I would like to delete files from the data spaces at the Data Analytics page  
Qlik SaaS - Include Delete and Move options for data files in the actions button menu 
Checkbox for editing/deleting many data-sources at once Qlik cloud SAAS 

all the best,
