Issue deleting forms

I've just updated a site to Perch 3.0.10 and I've got a role set up where the users can view and delete form responses in the form app.

This is a screenshot my client has sent me: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5lwkxfe3wrul6ny/Capture.JPG?dl=0

They don't have 'delete' buttons any more. I've checked my access and, as a Primary Admin I can see the buttons ok: https://www.dropbox.com/s/aytw56ut8jgkh6s/Screen%20Shot%202017-10-09%20at%2011.26.28%20am.png?dl=0

I've got a test user set up, have given them the same access role and have tried turning a bunch of options off and on to see if anything works but no luck. I'd've guessed it'd be the 'Delete forms' option under 'Forms': https://www.dropbox.com/s/yf0cwe71z1dnkyn/cms-core-users-roles-edit--id%3D5.png?dl=0

Do you know if it's me checking the wrong thing or could it be a wee glitch in Perch that's stopping the Delete buttons appearing?

Thanks for taking a look :)

Looks like it's a bug. For now you could give them permission to delete users... (face palm)

I'll get it fixed.

Hi Drew :) They're in no great rush so I'll hold out for the fix. Thanks!

Hi Drew,

I've just updated to Perch 3.0.11 and Forms 1.8.3 and logged in as a test user with the same permissions as my client but the ability to delete form submissions is still missing :( Could be that I've misconfigured something so any guidance would be appreciated if so.

Thanks for keeping me right,


Sorry, it’s forms 1.10 I upgraded to. The change log says 1.8.3 was the most recent – got mixed up.
