Deleting Records

How do I delete records from Arctos?

  1. Encumber the record(s) to be deleted. Create an appropriate encumbrance first, if necessary. Records may be flagged from individual specimens, or en masse by using the Manage widget from SpecimenResults. Once records are flagged, they may be deleted by users with the appropriate privileges.
  2. Find the encumbrance (under Tools). Click See Specimens and carefully review what you're about to delete.
  3. From Manage Encumbrances, click Delete Encumbered Specimens. You'll again be asked to review your decision, and must click the proceed button at the bottom of the page to delete the records from the database.
Note that there may be reasons to keep masked records in the database instead of deleting them.
