Was option for deletion of Multiple selected document always there?

Hi,

HP TRIM 7.3.4 MS Office 2010 Windows 7

 

Was this option for multiple deletion of Multiple selected document always there?

 

E.g. if average user select one document, the option Delete in File menu is greyed out, however, if a user select 3-4 documents , the option for deletion is there, and the red icon Delete is there, not greyed out.

 

However, if user click OK on File Delete "All selected Records" and OK again .... the documents processing will start but the errors will be displayed in the Activity Log Pane at the bottom saying that this record type does not allow deletion..

 

To avoid confusion, I think this needs to be fixed somehow .....

 

Regards

Firstly, average users are unable to delete records. That is an administrator privilege

 

Yep you were always able to delete multiple records.

 

You can delete a single record, tag it and take the focus off that record 

 

See here, 1 record tagged, but the focus is on the same record. and delete is greyed out.

 

 

 

Then here, same records, but the focus is on 12 and now delete is available. Not entirely sure why it is like that though.

 

 

 

Finally, if you have the following option unticked in the record type properties then you will not be allowed to delete the document.

Thanks, I know, wierd, a?

 

It would be nice if TRIM can undersyand straightaway that this record type have the option not ticked for deltion of the document and also not ticked the option for "Remove electronic document" ..

This just gave us falso alarm and also for user a false hope that he/she can delete the multiple documents ..

Tagging always does this and always has since tagging existed in TRIM.

It's not just with delete, but ANY action/function within TRIM.

 

When right-click an idividual record, TRIM will know what permissions, access and actions are available.

When tagging, TRIM does not validate all tagged items before showing which options might or might not be available, it would be stupidly slow for every right-click etc when items are tagged if TRIM had to go and validate every tagged item first.
