I looked through a couple different parts of the code briefly and it looks like our intention was to allow both space administrators and system administrators to view and restore deleted documents. Is that not the behavior you are seeing?
Weird--I replied to the email notification with AJ's response but it was not posted here.
Anyway, Space Admins cannot see or restore deleted documents in Document Management (in the Admin Console). Site Admins can see and restore deleted documents in Document Management.
I'm almost positive that Space Admins could see and restore deleted documents in an earlier version of Clearspace. We're now on 1.3.
Thanks for your help on this
