Delete Position

This procedure should be used when deleting a position record.

The result will be the full removal of a position record including any links to documents, technical specifications, and such.

Before you start

Appropriate access rights to delete must be available for 'Model/Site Edition. Open List' (MOS435), 'Model/Site. Open Config Structure' (MOS445) and 'Model/Site. Connect Position' (MOS440).

Follow these steps

Delete position records

  1. The alternative structure reference must be deleted from 'Model/Site. Open Config Structure' (MOS445).

  2. The site edition record must be deleted from 'Model/Site Edition. Open List' (MOS435).

  3. The position record can then be removed from 'Model/Site. Connect Position' (MOS440).
