Authorization Code for Edits that May Delete Data

 

As a TS Coordinator, if you are trying to delete a DRF requirement or rubric element that is currently in use, you'll be prompted to enter an authorization code before proceeding with the deletion. This step is a precautionary measure to ensure the integrity of your data and requires an issuance by the Watermark Support Team.

Authorization codes play a crucial role in safeguarding your data and preventing any accidental deletion errors. They are required in Taskstream when making changes that could potentially result in the loss of submission or evaluation data. 

***********************************************************************************************

It's important to note that edits made using an authorization code are irreversible, and any deleted data cannot be restored. Also, keep in mind that template edits will affect all DRF programs created from that template, including those actively in use. This might cause confusion among DRF participants if they are not informed. To avoid impacting your past or current DRF programs, we recommend copying your existing template and making changes to the copy if possible.

If a student has submitted work under an area that is later deleted, their work is safe and can be accessed in an automatically created portfolio in their Folio Builder named “Deleted DRF Requirements.”

If you need an authorization code, Submit A Request with the subject "Authorization Code." In your request, provide a description of what you would like to edit or delete, including the exact names of the respective rubrics and DRF templates.

Please note that by using the issued authorization code, you are agreeing that you are aware that the changes are permanent and irreversible.
