How Can I Delete Members From My Company
Currently, it is not possible to 'Delete' active members from your companies.
An active member is someone with an active Back On Stage profile who received and accepted an invitation from you to join your company (band).
However, you can delete member invitations if the member has not yet accepted your invitation. To delete a user invitation, simply go to the Invite New Member Page of the company you wish to modify, then scroll down until you see "Invited Members List". Click the 'Actions' button next to the user you want to delete and select "Delete User".
Why Can't I Delete Active Members From My Company?
Once a member has been activated (they 'accepted' your invitation) inside your company, all sorts of magical things happen. Administrators within your company can 'book' this member for various gigs. When they do, this member can post chat messages, share files within gigs and be assigned tasks. Even more important than that, this member can recieve payouts from your company for which BOS will generate invoices with this members information. These payouts are logged in your financial reports within various gigs.
Deleting a member would mean that all of the above items that were created for and attached to that member would also have to be deleted.
Imagine a situaion where a new administrator of your company accidently deletes a member and suddently all the records of payouts to that member and all their past invoices suddenly vanish. How would you file your taxes at the end of the year? All your income and expense reports for any gigs that involved that member would be all messed up. Not cool!
Since Back On Stage is partially a bookkeeping tool, we felt it necessary to follow good accounting practice (and help you avoid possible nasty accidents) by not allowing outright deletion of suppliers from your books.
Deactivate A User Instead
Maybe you've had a falling out with a particular band member. Or maybe one of your bandmates moved away and will no longer be participating in your music project?
Those are some great examples for when deactivating a user would be a great option.
The Back On Stage team is currently working on developing this feature. Once deactivated, a member would no longer be able to:
- access your company and
- your company will not be able to book them for any gigs.
However, all the member's previous invoices and financial transaction data will remain in tact - just what your accounnt will want to hear!
Unfortunately, we don't have an ETA on this feature at the moment, but please be patient and we'll update you as soon as it is ready! (via email to your leader account email address)
