Can I delete a Case Number from my system?



Question from client: Is there a way that we can delete a case # all together? We have people entering in the case number incorrectly and we would like to just delete the case # all together.

Answer: There are VERY few scenarios in SAFE where something can be deleted. However, I don't believe you want to delete a Case # as much as you want it to display the correct one. If you edit an existing case and change the case number, that will effectively make that case go away.
