How I delete ACM informations?

How I remove ACM informations from a set?

Other strange thing: If you delete a set from your collection and you export the ACM Data as CSV, then the information of the deleted set is still listed in the csv...

    You are right @Lebostein , it is a bit of a workaround to get them deleted and yes, if you don't delete it manually it will stay in the database.

    If you open the set details and you press edit, you won't see a delete button unless the set has actually been deleted.
    So in the 'you own... of this set' you put a zero. Then you open the ACM and press 'edit'. Now there will be a delete button too like this. 


    If you previously owned 2 or more and you just lower the number, then this delete will be visible for each 'deleted record'. So for example


    And then clicking on edit will give you the possibility to delete.

    It is a little bit of a workaround. When I discovered this first time I also had to manually look up all the sets that had been deleted, change the field and then go and delete them. I think I tried with deleting in the ACV and re-importing, but I don't think that worked. Now when I delete a set, I just try to remember.

    Hope this helps!

    It's done like this so that you can't wipe out carefully entered ACM info by accidentally un-ticking the 'I Own' box.

    How do you ‘open the ACM’?

    Hello everybody,

    This is my first post and I'm not sure if this is the right place. So please excuse me if  I'm doing it wrong.

    When I remove a set from my collection I'm not able to remove it from the ACM. But the number behind the ACM symbol stil retains the old amount. I added some pictures to make my problem more clear.

    What I'm I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance!

    ^ I see that same thing.  It seems like the ACM(X) number is how many entries it has for you in the ACM, but can't seem to get rid of it even if clearing out the entered data.  Would think that when you go to "edit" for a line you should have the option to delete that entry.

    Interesting, it took me a while to figure out what was going on. I think that might have been a problem since the ACM was implemented, but I've sorted it now.

    I'm still seeing "ACM(2)" next to a set I changed back to owning 1 of.

    Thanks, it partially solved. if I remove a set and refresh te page te number behind the ACM is the same as the number of sets i have. But if i increase the number of sets the old information is still there. I'm not sure if that's a problem for the analysis.

    If not I'm happy with the result 😉

    I guess it depends on how its supposed to work.  I understand not wanting to accidentally delete ACM data, but in this case how do you intentionally delete it?  I don't get a "Delete" option when I go into an ACM line's "Edit" mode and feel like I should be able to delete those extra ones if desired.  Not a big deal for me since I don't really use it, but now I have "ACM(2)" next to a set I own one of because I was testing this out =)
