restoring tasks of a renamed source document

Hello I got qlikview document deployed on the server (QlikTech->Source documents)

I created several tasks on this document varrying from task that simply reloads data and other that reduces data and distributes the reduced document to a folder

these tasks were working properly

the client decided to rename the source document but the tasks no more appear under the renamed document under the source document in the QV server

how can I restore the tasks to appear under the renamed document or even delete them because on the Status tab I can see them butt cannot delete them or move them to appear under the renamed document

Re: restoring tasks of a renamed source document

Hi,

this was some years ago. Now in 2015, isn't der a better way to do it.

We have 200 Tasks, I do not like to do all the copying manually.

Thank you - Marcel
