Delete Locked Documents

Currently in Solution Manager we can set the document to Complete status which locks the document for all changes, however a user is still able to delete the document even if it is complete status. Is there a way to disable deleting documents that are in locked status?

Thanks for the help.

    Hello Ryan,

    it is not possible to delete a document which is locked for changes. I guess what you mean is that someone removed the link to the document from the process structure. This does not delete the document, you can verify that by searching the document, it is sill in the document repository. It is not possible to prevent this at the moment.

    Removing the link is recorded in the history of the tab, so you know who removed the link to the document and you can talk to him. I guess there might be a reason why he did that.

    Best regards

    Jürgen

      Hello Ryan,

      how did you remove the document ? Did you use the red bar ( which means remove link ) or the trash can (which removes the link and deletes the document) ?

      In the history of the document tab you should see in the first column the user who has removed the document. Take the title of the document to search for it if you have used the red bar to remove it.

      Best regards
