Unable to delete seemingly empty category.


When trying to delete a seemingly empty category from K2 Designer or K2 Management and error is raised stating there is dependent forms or views associated with the category.



If no items are present in this category, it might be that someone created forms or views that were not checked in.

This will then only allow the creator of the forms or views to see the item in the category.

If no developer is aware of any such forms or views the best option would be to Log a k2 support ticket. Support will be able to identify the forms or views associated with this category from the k2 database.
