Hi All,

Marilyn was working with a faculty member on creating a group called "poets together".

Several private groups were created and have since been deleted but they still appear in the courses list. See here:

The only "poets together" group that should exist is the public group with working link.

Can the listings for the other, private "poets together" groups be removed/deleted from the courses tab?

I'm going to pin this to the 1.17.1 milestone, so that I can make this process automated. Namely, when a group or site is deleted, if it's associated with a Course, and the Course has no other groups or sites associated with it, trash the Course as well.

That sounds great. Thanks Boone!

Thanks to you both! This is really helpful.

Boone, if you'd like to give me editing powers on the courses page I'd be happy to help. But I also can see if you'd want to keep the circle small.

Thanks, Marilyn! The Course editing interface is a bit flaky, so I'm going to keep the circle small for now. If this becomes a more common occurrence, I'll see what I can do about granting you access.

  • Status changed from Assigned to Staged for Production Release

I've implemented this in When you delete a Site that's associated with a Course, we check to see whether the Course has any other associated items (Groups, or other Sites). If no, the Course is trashed. If yes, the deleted Site is removed from the association with the Course. Mutatis mutandis for Groups.
