To delete tasks?

Hello

I want to delete a distribution task i have created, in the enterprise management console.

I don't only want to disable it, i want to delete it.

There are more than one thread here on the subject, but they all seems to answer how to disable a task,

regardless if the question was how to delete the task.

(Yes, the task remains in the management console after I have disabled them.)

Solution anybody?

Best regards

Mats

To delete tasks?

Sorry if I've misunderstood you question, but you should easily be able to delete tasks from either the QEMC. 

Under 'Documents' > 'Source Documents' > '{Server Name}' > '{Sub-folder}' > '{Task Name}'.

Select the line with the task icon...

taskIcon.jpg

not the task properties icon...

TaskProperties.jpg

On the far right side there should be a red X icon...

redX.jpg This will delete the task.  You may need to scroll if the red X is not displayed.

This will only delete the task and not the distributed documents.  Those will need to manually deleted.

This should also work on the QMC.

Hopefully this helps,

B

To delete tasks?

Oh, thanks.

Not very intiutive arrangement there by QV; You have to select something else than you want to change.

"So you want to buy a red bicykle? Then you can't take a red bicykle to the cashier, you have to take a blue one. Then and only then you will have your red bicykle."

Odd..

Thanks again

Re: To delete tasks?

I have an interesting question. I have created a task from source documents. But after some time, i have deleted the source document from the source folder. Now i see the task still under the status. Can i delete the task by any other way?

Re: To delete tasks?


Follow the exact same process, but instead of opening the sub-folder the task was originally in, open the Orphans sub-folder.

Any tasks that don't relate to an existing document will show up there.
