Hi @sakand ,

 

you can delete lists if List are not referenced in any of the modules.

Re: how to delete unused list items

Hi @sakand - To Identify unused List.

 

Step 1: Click General List Setting.

Step 2: Scroll to the right, you can see 3 columns

                                         (Referenced in Applies to, Referenced as Format, Referenced in Formula)

Referenced in Applies to - List is used as a dimension in a module.

Referenced as Format    -  List is used as a format in line item.

Referenced in Formula   -  List is used in formula.

 

With the help of those, you can identify the lists which are not in use.

 

Hope it helps

Re: how to delete unused list items

Hi @sakand,

 

I believe you are looking for deleting the unused list items to reduce the module size. In that case, you are talking about sparsity in your model (Empty cells in the module). There are so many ways you could reduce the sparsity.

 

I would suggest you use the list subset in your list and use this subset list as part of your module dimension.

 

When I say subset you would be selecting only list item that is required for your module (carries data) and also easy to maintain. You can also maintain this subset through simple boolean import as well.

 

Let me know if you need further help with this.

 

Thanks,

Sandeep
