Users cannot completely delete their jobs. When a user selects a job in the Job Manager and clicks Delete, he removes the job from his list, but the job still exists in the administratorís list, and associated files are not deleted. The administrator can completely delete usersí jobs from the his Job Manager.

Is this the intended behavior in version 9.1.002e ?

Well intentioned users are trying to clean their accounts of failed and unneeded jobs, but they are unaware that their actions have nearly no affect. As administrator, I would need manually to inventory the usersí accounts to decide what to discard.

This is the intended behavior. Deleted jobs are simply moved into the "Trash" folder. To empty the trash, user's should click the "Empty Trash" link. Users are automatically prompted to empty their trash when the logout if there are sufficiently many jobs in the trash. (In version 10, I changed the threshold for this 'warning' to be ANY jobs, so users are always prompted to empty their trash when logging out. You may incorporate this change into v9 by modifying the obvious line in the 'Logout' function in jobmgr.html)

Thanks, JR. I have reduced the threshold from 50 to 5.
