Provide model builders a "Model Cleanup View"
Our model is rather large, and over multiple development cycles and many different developers we have a large amount pieces of the model that may now be obsolete. The trouble is with a large model it is incredibly cumbersome to locate safely remove clutter without the fear of causing major issues in the model.
The only way I know of is to check all the "referenced by" columns in the various settings menu lists (Actions Dashboards, Modules etc.), and stitch together a picture of whether something is unused. Even then a complete picture of whether something is used or not isn't available for builders to view (imports pointing to saved views for instance).
It would be incredibly helpful to have a dedicated place in the settings menus where model builders can go to help them identify model clutter, such as:
- unused modules, actions dashboards that can't be connected to (i.e. is not linked to in an open action button, and is not in the contents pane)
- Line items not used in formulas, not shown on dashboards
- saved views not in use
