A Department can be deleted only when it is not associated to an Investment, Resource, Location, Chargeback Rule and not referenced in PPA_WIP.
However you can inactivate a department so it is not available to select when choosing a department. Inactive ones will still show on investments where they are already associated.
- To inactivate a department, go to
- Home / Departments
- Configure the List page to add the Active attribute.
- Save and Return
Now you will be able to change the Active flag to no.
Note: In some cases transactions may be as a result of testing and customers may not really need those so in that scenario they can run "Purge Financial Tables" job to delete those transaction so then they can delete Location which was tied to those transactions.
