How to Delete a Chart

When you delete a Chart, all elements of the Chart 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 Chart?

  • Any of the Authors

  • Anyone with the “Chart - Delete” permission if the Chart is in the specified Network Location.

 

Who is notified when a Chart is deleted?

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

In the resulting window:

  • Enter a reason for deleting the Chart.

  • If this Chart 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 Chart 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 Chart, 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 Chart.

    • Selecting “Yes” will delete all types of nested Items under Items that are nested beneath this Chart, 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.

  • Check the box next to “I understand this cannot be undone.”
