Tiny Cat Custom status--won't delete

feb 4, 2019, 4:39 pm

I used a few custom statuses but now have a list of custom inactive statuses that I would like to delete. When my volunteers and I need to change a status, the list of choices that pops up includes the inactive statuses that I do not want used and it's confusing to some.

I went to Tiny Cat Admin--Transactions--Statuses and see my list of active and inactive custom statuses. There is a little "X" next to the inactive statuses and when I check it, a message pops up, "Delete this status?" I click "OK" but nothing happens. The statuses remain the same. Can you help? Thanks so much!

>1 UnityChurch: Can you cite some specific examples here, please? What exactly are you trying to delete? It sounds like you’re attempting to delete the name of a custom status you created, a status you’re no longer using. By deleting items from the Trasnactions list, you’re not deleting the status label—you’re deleting that particular transaction status (so that instance of a checkout, hold, etc.), rather than the label itself. There is currently no way to delete custom statuses at the moment, though we do plan to add that in the future.

>2 lorannen: I believe they're talking about their list of statuses that aren't being used from the page they mentioned (the Transactions > Statuses) page. For example, mine looks like this:

>1 UnityChurch: Sorry for the trouble! The feature is in the works, as you can see, but it's not quite finished—we should hide that list, I believe, until it is functional. I'm making a note to developers to see if they can do this until folks can actually delete their own custom lending statuses.

OK thanks so much!

Just checking in on this topic again to see if we can delete our own custom lending statuses yet?

Alas, not yet: you can edit them but not completely delete them. If you need help with deleting a custom lending status from your library, shoot me a message or an email at kristi @ librarything . com

Adding this to the feature request list. That being said, I know I'm using TinyCat in a way it was not designed to be used (my custom status is 'Can be Purchased'). Thanks for all you do.

>7 NorthomeLibrary: You might want to have a look at LibraryThing's Terms of Service (https://www.librarything.com/privacy) which prevents commercial activity on the platform including selling books, and on TinyCat (a product of LT). I would remove any selling language from your platform on LT and TC to avoid getting flagged/blocked.
