Workflows and how to delete "nested" data types

Hello everyone! I’ve been struggling for a while with some issue. Would be super grateful for the community help!)

Here’s the problem. I organized by database with types like LVL1, LVL2, LVL3. Each of them refers to another in a “nested” way. LVL1 was a filed for LVL2 lists, while LVL2 has LVL1 field etc. And that works pretty well almost all the time.

The problem is that this is a task-manager (for desktop browser for now). So imagine LVL1 is a project, LVL2 is a task and LVL3 is a subtask. But what if a user wants to delete whole project (LVL1) including all its children (LVL2→LVL3). That’s exactly what I’ve been struggling with. And I have no idea how to create a workflow for that. It seems like I’ve tried everything I could imagine.

Any ideas? Thank you in advance)

In the delete workflow for a LVL1 thing,
add 3 actions:

  1. Delete a list of things | Things: thisLVL1’s LVL2’s LVL3s
  2. Delete a list of things | Things: thisLVL1’s LVL2s
  3. Delete a list of things | Things: This LVL1

That should delete things in a clean way, not keeping any unclean things on the DB
