  4. From the Schedule dropdown you may choose either On demand,Scheduled or Advanced.

    • If you choose Scheduled you enter the schedule dale and time from the pop-up date and time choices; you will click Save to set the scheduled job:

    • If you choose On demand… the choices for the job are either Save or Save and identify.

    • The Advanced selection accepts a CRON expression in UTC timezone for Minute Hour Day-of-Month Month Day-of-Week; Save sets the job.

  5. You may determine a recipient for Email notification by checking the box to Send email with document deletion. Select the server from the dropdown list and enter the recipient(s) - both To and optionally BCC.

  6. When you Save an on-demand deletion, for example, the Document deletion screen will show the job and proceed to identify the documents and related elements to be removed.

  8. To proceed, choose Delete documents and data.

  9. You are prompted to confirm, with a warning that this cannot be undone.

  10. In Step 5 of 5, once the documents are deleted, a cleanup process begins automatically, reprocessing indexes, entities and other data elements affected by the document deletion.
