Deleting Unused Places

TNG version: 12.0.0

TNG v12 incorporates the Places Subject to Deletion mod and essentially the code provided in the Maintenance - Pooled Places with no Events report of places that are not linked to any event that allows an easy way to delete these places from your TNG database.

48. Places: The "places subject to deletion" mod has been incorporated.

The Places search now provides a checkbox to select places with No associated events which should detect all unused places whether they contain geocodes which were not deleted by TNG on an import since TNG V6.1 or because you are now Pooling Places since TNG V9 and thus places are no longer deleted before an import, since they are no longer associated with the tree being imported.

To use the new Place Search option:

  • check the No associated events box

  • click the Select All button
  • click the Delete Selected button to delete the selected entries

This also eliminates the need to run the Maintenance - Pooled Places with no Events report in order to delete places that no longer have any associated events if you had not installed the Places Subject to Deletion mod
