Delete on Check In

I know this issue has been raised before

From the Dropped Files tab in Options:

Delete document after it has been processed - select for HPE Records Manager to delete the electronic document from the folder after checking it in. Recommended as good records management practice”.

Ticking this check box, does not, and has never, removed a document from a shared network drive using the Check In function. Only drag and drop will remove the document.

Can someone advise the purpose of the check box

We had a developer create an add-in that did remove documents from shared drives after check in, when we were on v7.3. Before we pay another developer to create a similar addin when we upgrade to CM 9, is there any way this function can be done out of the box.

Re: Delete on Check In

The original design was for local documents on a personal machine. It might be worth logging a support case to see if we can add the delete document from shared drives. 
I suspect though, because of the nature of a shared drive being used by multiple users it might not be an ideal situation to have documents being deleted.

Worth asking \ suggesting though
