After a user edits a document that document becomes one of their documents because they are a collaborator on it.
Once a document is deleted it can be restored in the Admin console under "Spaces"-"Document Management".
I don't really see a good way to delete all a users content from the system. If Clearspace did only delete the documents that a user created, what if someone had added to them? If just the deleted users content was removed then the remaining document probably wouldn't make any sense. I would be interested your ideas on how this type of functionality would work.
Hi Shaun -
The thinking behind this feature was that you are deleting the documents a user owns. The list that is displayed in this page is the list of all documents that a user has created. Every document has an owner (the creator), regardless of whether it is open or closed, how many versions there are, and how many collaborators there may be. It is not the list of every document a user has edited.
I agree this page would make more sense if it showed you all the documents a user has edited, and it only deleted those versions a user has created. It brings up a few strange corner cases, but nothing we can't deal with. For explicit and complete document deletion, you could then just use the document management page rather than this user activity page. I filed this suggestion in jira here: http://www.jivesoftware.com/issues/browse/CS-820
Ooch - just found another bug in this code. The list of documents that is displayed on the page behaves as I described earlier. Unfortunately, clicking the 'delete all' button deletes a different, and more expansive list of documents. It includes all document to which the user was added as an author. This is not the intent of the feature, and I've filed yet another issue here: http://www.jivesoftware.com/issues/browse/CS-821
Interesting. One of our users has just noted the following:
Bug: If documents you created are edited by anyone they are removed from "Your Stuff". The linking needs to remain on the creator of the document instead of the latest publisher.
This sounds like its linked to your observations...what do you think ?
