Deleting Documents

This section provides an overview of deleting documents and discusses how to:

  • Delete documents in the Document Builder.

  • Delete documents in the Document Administration Component.

You can delete documents from two locations in the PeopleSoft system: in the Document Builder and on the Delete/Rename Documents page of the Document Administration component.

You can use either location to delete a single document from the system. To delete multiple documents at a time, use the Delete/Rename Documents page.

Note that when you delete a document, you delete the document and all related objects.

To delete a document in the Document Builder:

  1. Access the Document Builder - Document page (PeopleTools > Documents > Document Builder).

  2. Click the Delete button.

  3. Click the OK button.

You can also delete a document in the PeopleSoft system using the Delete/Rename Document page (IB_DOCUMENT_ADMIN) located in the Document Administration component. Using the Delete/Rename page, you can delete a single document or multiple documents.

To delete a document in the Document Administration component:

  1. Access the Delete/Rename Document page (PeopleTools > Documents > Document Administration > Delete/Rename Document).

    The Delete/Rename Document page appears.

  2. Click the arrow icon next to the Document Deletion label to expand the section if it is not already expanded.

  3. Search for the documents to delete.

    See Searching for Document Definitions.

  4. In the Documents section, select the Select check box next to each document that you want to delete.
