How to delete tasks from the Dashboard?

Hi
Now we have uploaded the following patch http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=8125 so I should be able to delete as many tasks as I want. But how do I do it?

Hi Niels Erik,

Are you looking to delete submissions, or tasks? If it's tasks, there is another Bugzilla entry allowing deletion of those -- it's part of http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=8528. However, that might be difficult to back-port as a lot of it involves moving code between the application and the shared pkp-lib library.

Hi Alec
I would prefer to have the opportunity to delete both kinds of files, tasks as well as submissions.

Hi Niels Erik,

It should be possible to delete submissions without applying any patches at all (the top Bugzilla entry you linked is intended for OMP pre-release and the relevant code should already be included in OMP 1.0).

As for tasks, the code in bug #8528 will add a row action permitting the deletion of tasks from the Tasks list in the dashboard. However, as I say, it might be easier to wait for the release of OMP 1.1 (which we hope will be within a month, depending on our translators' progress).

I'll wait. But how do you delete submissions?

Hi Niels Erik,

If you're a Press Manager, and you can see the submission in one of the lists available (e.g. from the Submissions tab of the dashboard), then you should be able to click the pencil to the left of its title to show the available operations. One of them should be delete.

Hi
I now have the OMP 1.1 but still I'm not able to delete ARCHIVED SUBMISSIONS. When I click the OK button under Delete nothing happens.

Hi Niels

What happens when you click the button? Any error messages in your log? Does the modal confirmation appear?

Regards,
Jason

No, nothing happens, it's totally inactive. I've tested it in Explorer, Firefox and Chrome.

Hi Niels Erik,

There's a recommended patch for that.

That solved the problem, thank you.
Now I have another, sorry. Shouldn't all my e-books showing up under the Catalog page also be visible under the Dashboard > Archives page? I can't find them there, and therefore I can't delete them.
I can find them under Management > Catalog, but from there I'm not able to delete them.

Hi Niels Erik,

We're currently working on fixing a few elements of the dashboard, including the one you mention, at http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7138 -- I'll make a mention of this thread in that entry.

Hi Alec
Are you still working on fixing that problem? I would really like to delete some of our test e-books from our Catalog page.

Hi Niels Erik,

Task deletion was implemented as part of bug #8528, which made it into the OMP 1.1.0 release. (Since then we've invested quite a bit of work on the dashboard, so it'll be further refined for the next release -- see the specification work at http://pkp.sfu.ca/wiki/index.php?title=OJS_Dashboard.)

Hi Alec
We're running the VERSION: 1.1.0.0 so I should be able to delete the books frem the Catalog page, but I can't find out how? I have deleted it from the Dashboard and the Submission page, but it's still figuring on the Catalog page.
