    Vanishing documents ?

    Getting reports from users and scanning departments that documents are
    dissapearing from the libraries. We have a scanning dept that imports
    throughout the day. Document #1043234 in Active Clients library for
    example, was imported on the 9th or 10th of May, and it does not show
    up via a search of the library. However, the user who imported it, the
    doc shows up in her "Documents" folder. Sharing looks correct, etc.
    Im puzzled.

    Can a user "open" it by doc number? I'm still wondering if your indexing
    woes are not bigger than we might imagine.

    Well, if it's not an integrated application, you need to create a document
    reference first - New|Document Reference - put in the library and document
    number. If it will actually create the document reference, then the file
    exists, etc. and you should be able to open it. If that's the case, then
    indexing is really messed up so you can't "see" it in a find, but can open
    it if you know the number, etc.

    Ah-ha.. I started to go through the steps earlier but I hit "no" when
    it said the doc doesnt exist, do i want to create anyway. This time i
    said "yes", it appeared in my mailbox, tried to open it and it said it
    was deleted by a user.. problem solved.

    Heehee - well, that's what so nice about the activity log - even after a doc
    is deleted you can find the culprit. Both Dave and I advocate the "no one
    can delete" policy and create a "delete" document type. Then users can't
    accidentally delete something they want back, but a "cleanup" of all docs
    with type "delete" can get rid of them if you really want.

    And if you are extremely paranoid, the Doc Type is delete, but the action
    is archive <g>

    Cheers Dave
