Hi. Is there any way of deleting multiple diary entries, without having to select each one at a time?

Best regards,

Mark.

Hi Mark, not at the moment but we'll look at implementing this in the future.

I'll update this post when we have more news.

Thanks,

Simon

Hi Simon..

I can support MarkW on this, as a result of using the BG summary report & digging down during a post Xmas/EOY review, I found quite a few data entry errors I had made which needed to be deleted/corrected.

Typically these were date errors (1 day out) causing 10 entries to be allocated to a single day although entered on 2 separate occasions. Also simple entry of BI value in QA box etc

You may feel I've just got thick fingers but I wondered if a Consistency Report could be produced which would advise apparently odd data values as an adjunct (say) to the Summary report or maybe better immediately with the entry errors . The user could chose/flag to ignore or correct if necessary.

There are lots of checks which could be made to highlight major oddities rather than normal variation but perhaps some are:

-Date entered is already on file
-Date missing from sequence already on file
-QA is much higher than usual (say 200% avg) at that time of day
-Usual BI entry missing

No doubt other users can add more checks if you think the report is a possibility.

Let us know what you think.

Thanks, John

We've added support for deleting diary entries now. You will see a check box next to each of your entries in your diary - check this and click the button below the diary and the selected entries will be deleted.

Re the Consistency report - a great idea but pretty complex so will probably take some time - we will work on it though!

Hi Simon .. thanks for that, should be most helpful in sorting errors.

A comment on your instructional note .. 'the box left' shold be ' the box above' ?

Also, trying to update multiple a few mins ago, gave an 'unkown error'. Could be my pc tho as having a few probs at moment.

Cheers, John

Hi John - ah, sometimes it will appear to the left if you screen resolution is high enough (I have a widescreen monitor so it does for me) but yes it is the box above/left.

Also re the add multiple error - that was my fault and is now fixed - apologies!

Yes indeed, thanks for the spot there John. In my defence, my day job has been rather hectic recently so my brain is addled when it comes to developing the site at night! Smile

All fixed now, let me know if you find any more problems/would like anything new.
