Unable to delete User(s)
« on: February 07, 2013, 09:50:24 AM »
Feng Office2.2.2 (Community).

Have been reviewing Web Based Office Systems for a small community organisation, and found Feng to be the most compelling.  After a bit of trial and error, gradually making sense of it.

I searched the Forums for similar posts, but did not find anything that seemed to help with this, though I am sure others may have a similar experience.

Some Users cannot be deleted it seems, at least from the UI.  In the list of Users (Administration/Users), some can be deleted and some cannot.  At first I suspected that this could be due to a User having properties associated with it (Tasks/Workspaces/etc), so I tried to remove any such, but still no luck.  However they can be disabled.

This is somewhat inconvenient.  After completing the trial using 'pretend' information, I want to clean up before rolling Feng out in the office.  Consequently, I want to delete any pretend Users.  But I cannot delete some of them.

Is there something I can do to ensure sure a User can be deleted?  Am I missing something?

I am no expert but no novice either, and am comfortable working with MySQL and PHP to a degree.

Any advice appreciated.  Thanks.

The short answer is no, mostly because I have been preoccupied with other things, but it not a show stopper anyway.  Those that cannot be deleted can be disabled, and deleting records in a complex relationship(s) is a very demanding process, and I can understand the challenges for developers.  How do you handle orphaned records, or even other processes that would fall over if a record is deleted.  And so on.

So I am happy to live with the current system.

Exactly! Should all the records be deleted, it would be very inconsistent.
