Admin tool to retrieve records with no attachments

Admin tool to retrieve records with no attachments

I want to clean up our Parties module duplications and the best starting point would be after all unused records have been removed. Unfortunately, there is currently no way to retrieve records based on a lack of attachment to anything.

I would love to see a standard tool in the EMu Admin menu that can retrieve unattached Parties records (and indeed records from any peripheral module).

Hi Karen & Mark,  +1 from me
This issue has come up at a couple of meetings in the past - particularly in relation to finding unattached Multimedia Records. An admin tool that could search for records with no attachements in all modules would be incredibly handy for cleaning up!

If you need to find records that have no attachments, please contact your local EMu support office for assistance.

I just noticed this post. We have a "No Attachments" tool at NMAI. PM me if you have any questions or would like to see screenshots, etc.
Thanks,
Kara
