Marking a document as obsolete prevents it from being published. This action is typically done when the document has been added to the queue more than once. When the document has been published successfully once, the other registrations in the queue should be marked obsolete to prevent overwriting previous files on the destination system. The document's registration remains in the Publisher database for auditing and other purposes.
To mark a document as obsolete:
- Open the Publisher queue as described in View the Publisher Queue.
- Select the documents that you want to mark as obsolete. Press and hold the Ctrl key while clicking to select individual items. Press and hold the Shift key while selecting the first and last of a range of items.
- In the toolbar, click Obsolete. The status of the document changes to Obsolete.
For information about reversing this change, see Unmark a Document As Obsolete.
