Avoiding deleting elements in use
« on: December 14, 2017, 03:25:00 am »
Hi all
I want to clean up my database of elements not in use. I use the Find orphan function and it lists a lot of elements not in use. But many of them are used in my information flows. Is there a way of detecting which orphaned elements are used in information flows? Or is there a configuration where they would not show up in that list?

Thanks Mats
