Tagged: deleted added resources
I just signed up 2 weeks ago for your free trial CM Organizer and have been playing with it to see if it’s something that would work for our family. I absolutely love it so far, but have recently come up with a problem that I’m sure is a result of my experimentations. I decided I was done experimenting and am wanting to add data to start actually using the organizer before my 30 days is expired. I have noticed that the resources/information I added (for my experimenting) and then deleted (I wanted to start with a clean slate) are still showing up on “mock” reports I run. Doesn’t any information entered that is connected with a resource, disappear when you delete that resource? I hope I’m not stuck with the bogus information (information I entered when I was experimenting with the organizer) on my reports. If so, will it continue to remain there when we decide to subscribe after our 30 days are up?
I hope I’ve explained myself clearly. 🙂
An added note: When I run a detailed report, the items listed in connection with a deleted resource are showing 2,3 and some even 4 times. (????)

Hi, Rebecca –
We’re so glad you’re loving the CM Organizer! Let’s see if we can answer those questions . . .
– Once an assignment is checked off as Worked On or Finished, it goes into the records permanently. So even if you delete the resource, any assignments already done won’t be affected. That came in handy for me just this week when my daughter discovered that she had already completed several lessons at the end of her grammar book previously, so I just went into the Scheduler and deleted that resource since she didn’t need to do the rest of the lessons again. The grammar book came off the Daily Plan, but all the lessons she had checked off are still in her records and will show in the reports. I can see how “mock” records would be distracting, though. Let me see if we can manually clear those out for you. Do you want all of the current records deleted? I’ll check on that possibility for you. Just let me know.
– A detailed report will show all the days that the assignment/resource was Worked On as well as when it was Finished. So you’ll probably see several listings with various dates that say Worked On, and then one that says Finished for that assignment. Then the next assignment will have the same, depending on how many days you checked Worked On, of course. A summary report will show only Finished work, so any assignments that aren’t finished yet won’t show up in a summary report. Does that help?
It makes sense that completed assignments would remain even though a resource is deleted. And yes, it makes perfect sense what you explained regarding several entries for one assignment. Thanks for your response.
As far as deleting what I entered as I was experimenting, that would be wonderful! If you can wipe everything out – including added resources (??) – that would be great; then I could start with a clean slate. I’ll hold off on entering anything until I hear back from you. Had I known these entries ‘stay forever’, I would have been more conservative with my experimenting….I’m truly sorry for the trouble.
I do have another question: Is there somewhere we can go to find a listing of resources we’ve deleted? Just a “I’m curious” question – not related to the above.
Many thanks to you all,

OK, Rebecca, all of your experimental entries should be deleted now. Your added resources are still intact, but you can see a complete list of those if you go into your Account (upper right corner of the screen) and click on Resources. You can delete any of them there that you want to delete.
I don’t know of any place you can find a list of deleted resources. Sorry.
Hope this helps!
Thank you so much for your time/assistance. I’m excited to get everything entered now, so we can begin using the organizer “live”.
May God continue to bless you (SCM),
