Delete Duplicated Views

This extension allows a user to detect duplicated views and delete them from the selected module.

User interface


Problem to solve

Thanks to this extension users can delete duplicate views from the module with a few clicks. All views with the same name in the same scope are decided as duplicated. Since users are requested for confirmation in case the name for the manually created view is matching to the existing view (views) - this is the responsibility of a user.
This extension deletes duplicates of one view, the user selects an item representing a view in the list of found views and clicks the button "delete". After this, all views of this set except the selected one are deleted.


List of the views

Users can run a search of duplicated views and receive a list of duplicates sorted by creation date.

If there are several views with the same name, then there are displayed only the newest and the oldest plus the number of how many of them exist with that name

Details of views

When the user puts the cursor on one of the views from the list of the views, there will be displayed information, added by the extension containing the date of creation, creator, scope, and if this view is a personal or shared

Search views button
