How to Delete a Project

When you delete a Project, all elements of the Project except for the Items nested under will be deleted, unless you choose to delete the nested Items along with it.

NOTE: Once an Item has been deleted from KaiNexus, it CANNOT be recovered. For this reason, we highly recommend you either close out the Item with “No Change”, Archive the Item, or Defer the Item to maintain its record within KaiNexus if necessary. 

 

Who can delete a Project?

  • The Project’s Facilitators

  • Anyone who has the “Edit - Project” or the “Delete - Project” permission if the Project is in the specified Network Location. 

 

Who is notified when a Project is deleted?

An email is sent to the Project’s Team and anyone who has set up their notification preferences to include being notified about deleted Projects in that Location.

In the resulting window:

  • Enter a reason for deleting the Project.

  • If this Project has one or more upstream or downstream dependencies, you will see a confirmation checkbox that reads “I understand existing dependencies will be removed.” Check this box.

  • (**Optional**) If this Project has any Items nested underneath that you also wish to delete, check the box next to “Delete nested items”.

NOTE: Only the first 100 nested Items will be deleted.

  • Select how many levels down within the nested Items you want to delete.

    • Selecting “One Level” will only delete the Items that are directly nested under the Item you are currently deleting.

    • Selecting “All Levels” will delete all of the nested Items, several levels deep, that are nested under the Item you are currently deleting.

  • Select whether you want to delete all types of nested Items or not.

    • Selecting “Yes” will delete all types of nested Items under this Project, like Projects, Improvements, Incidents, Tasks, or Charts.

    • Selecting “No” will give you the option to checkboxes next to the types of nested Items you want to delete.

  • Select whether you want to delete all types of nested Items or not within the subsequent levels of this Project.

    • Selecting “Yes” will delete all types of nested Items under Items that are nested beneath this Project, like Projects, Improvements, Incidents, Tasks, or Charts.

    • Selecting “No” will give you the option to checkboxes next to the types of nested Items you want to delete.
