What does "Temp Hide" mean on Error Reports?

What does "Temp Hide" mean on Error Reports?  I thought that if I clicked "Temp Hide" the line would disappear for 30 days, but the only thing that happens is that the words "Temp Hide" change color.

If I recall correctly, it temporarily hides the error on that line from the report for 2 weeks. (temporarily)
The column heading says "hide 30 days."  That means it won't show up on the error reports again until the 30 days is over.  This is to give profile managers time to take care of whatever the error is, or merges to be automatically approved if there's no response.

This way, those working the db error report won't be spending time looking at errors that have already been addressed with the profile manager.

Thank You Jan I am still at a loss about this new function, all my impasses have been cleared already :)

John,

As I am not a native English speaking person, I have trouble interpreting your answer. Do you mean

  • everything is clear (all my impasses have been cleared already :))

or

  • would you like more explanation (I am still at a loss about this new function)

 

:) An impass is a blockage or like being tangled up with a rope. Yes sir all my errors for now are cleared away & taken care of. It's all good :) TY
Now I get it, Glad all your errors are fixed!
