A financial year (FY) is linked and associated with other data sets such as Term Time, Closure Days, Products, Bookings & Children. These data sets work in a cohesive manner because Cheqdin is powered by an intelligent booking algorithm and helps automate multiple functions. Hence, before you delete a financial year set you'll have to delete the interdependencies for that FY. 


To delete a financial year, you'll need to first delete any/all associations in the below order: 


Important Note: To successfully delete all dependant datasets, you must follow the order of deletion stated below, you won't be able to delete if the deletion order is done haphazardly. 

                Step 1: Delete sessions booked

                Step 2: Products defined (both active and inactive) under this FY

                Step 3: Term Time plans defined under this FY

                Step 4: Closure days defined under this FY

                Step 5: Delete Financial year


Step 1: Check if there are children with bookings for the sessions you are trying to delete. If not, you can skip to Step 2.

Be sure to delete active + any inactive products as well.
