Ability to delete subform records on ipadAnswered
We have lost the ability to delete subform records on ipads. We revisit sites annually and upload the previous year's locations. Our staff needs the ability to delete subform records while on site. They had this ability but are unable to now. Please reinstate.
Hi Dee, records that have been uploaded to the server can only be deleted from the server. In previous years when records that were already uploaded were deleted from the device side it created inconsistencies in data (as deleting that record from the device doesn't actually delete anything from the server).
Hope that helps,
Hi Dee, an option list based field (select or pick-list) would work well to minimize errors. Instead of performing the delete action, they would open the record, change the status field to "Delete" and then upload the data as usual.
By changing the status, the field team is telling the admin team that record is no longer needed, and therefore could be deleted after a review is performed.
Does that help?
