Deactivating a record is very similar to moving a record to recycle bin.
Re-activating an inactive record is also very similar to restoring the record from recycle bin.
You may control the activity status of records intead of deleting them permanently.
If you wish to control the activity status of records of a catalog, you should first enable that catalog
for tracking the activity information. To do this,
- Open properties window of that catalog by right clicking the catalog name from catalog tree and select "properties" from the popup menu,
- Check "enable activity control" box,
- Save and exit.
This will enable the activity control buttons on the application toolbar. You may now deactivate / reactivate a record when you are displaying a record in record details window.
Tip: You may also wish to disable DELETE right to prevent accidental
data loss from user group settings.
