Why can't I delete things in SciNote?

In order to support data integrity and traceability, very few elements within SciNote can be deleted - most of them can only be archived.

A few exceptions that can be deleted:

  • comments,
  • tags,
  • individual protocol steps,
  • reports,
  • results (only from the Archive; to delete results you need to be an Owner on the project),
  • inventory items, and
  • entire inventories (only a Team Admin can do this).

Nevertheless, the majority of the data can be archived and restored from the Archive at any time.

To learn more about how to use Archive and Restore function in SciNote watch our video tutorial below.
