Deleting Courses

Follow

Deleting a course from Ares removes the course from the database. Courses are deleted from the Course form using the Delete Course button located on the Home ribbon of the Details tab. Deleting a course from Ares removes the course record from the database along with all related items and history, including cross listings, course users, course user subscriptions and authorizations, and message boards.

Items are deleted from the course one by one; if an item cannot be deleted, such as an item with rights status pending through the CCC, the deletion process is halted. Any items already deleted are permanently deleted. All remaining items must be deleted manually. Deleting a course is an irreversible action and cannot be undone.
