  1. Open the document for editing
  2. While viewing the 'In Progress' document, click the Delete button on the far right.
  3. delete button found in a doc status of in progress

  4. Click OK in the popup box to confirm that this document should be deleted
  5. pop up alerting that you are deleting document

  6. The document will no longer be visible in the KB live site and will only be available in the KB Admin Tools under the Trash link on the left navigation bar. If the document needs to be restored at a later time, only someone with Publish rights will be able to do so. See KB User's Guide - Documents Tab - Restoring a deleted document for more information about restoring deleted KB documents.
