Bug Description

Evergreen 3.5.1

In the angularized Shelving Locations Editor deleted shelving locations display with the Is Deleted? flag set to yes. This is a change in behaviour from the dojo interface where deleted shelving locations did not display.

It would be useful if there was a way to filter out or hide deleted shelving locations when working in this interface, especially for libraries that have a significant number of shelving locations.

Even color coding would be helpful, although the ability to hide would be best.

I'm looking at the Shelving Locations Editor on 3.6.2 and there are filters on each column. I can filter out deleted locations by filtering "Is Deleted?" False. Is this existing functionality enough or should deleted items just not show at all in this interface?

3.6.1 doesn't have a way to filter the shelving locations. Neither did 3.4.

My preference would be to not see deleted shelving locations in the editor. However, I can see where it might be useful to be able to. Being able to filter out "is deleted?" false would be good. Having the setting stick would be better so I wouldn't have to choose it each time I opened the editor if I never wanted to see deleted locations. Does it stick in 3.6.2?

To address Dan's question, I definitely think that deleted shelving locations should be hidden by default. I'm not sure whether it would be useful for users to have access to the deleted shelving locations at all. Having access, as they do now, allows users to UNdelete a previously deleted shelving location.

To address Elaine's question, filter preferences and grid settings do not stick in the Shelving Location Editor in 3.6.2/master. Grid settings, at least, should. I don't see a bug report, so I will open one.

As long as the bug exists where a shelving location with items attached can be deleted, it might be best to be able to view deleted shelving locations in the editor so if one is mistakenly deleted, it can be undeleted easily. I do agree without that bug that deleted locations don't need to be visible in the editor.

In previous versions, you couldn't delete shelving locations if they had holdings, so having them disappear entirely made sense.

However, with the other outstanding bug that allows you to delete shelving locations when there are holdings attached (https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1910546), making them disappear entirely makes less sense.
