What are "<orphans>" source documents?

I see documents listed in the [ Documents | Source Documents ] tab under a tree element "<Orphans>".

I cannot find the term "Orphans" in the server documentation.

What is this tab trying to tell me? How does a document become an <Orphan>? How do I remedy the situation?

Re: What are "<orphans>" source documents?

Hi Daniel,

Orphan tasks (rather than documents) are those tasks attached to a document that has been moved or deleted, for example, and while the information on the task, permissions, triggers, etc... it's all stored into the QVPR, the actual document is no longer in its folder.

This basically allows you to delete tasks where documents no longer exist. In previous versions, you were not able to do that unless you created a new QVW with the same name.

Hope that helps.
