Issues with removing forced associations for predicted and NON outage events

There was a recent change that allowed users to remove some forced association events from switch plans, but there seems to be issues with predicted outages when there are multiple forced associations and for NON outages when there have been multiple forced associations.

Created a PDO and created an emergency switch plan from the PDO to create a forced association. If you select the event in the switch plan events list, the icon to remove the event association is available. Opened and close a different device to create a second forced association to the switch plan. If the original event is still selected, the button to remove the event association is still available. Select the original PDO event in the switch plan events list and you can no longer unassociate it from the plan. Move the open/close operations to the misc log which will also remove the second forced association from the switch plan, and now you are able to remove the forced PDO association again. The behavior seems to be the same if the original PDO event is cancelled at some point.

If you have deleted steps from a different version of the switch plan, the button to remove the event association is not available. Deleted steps really should not affect the ability to remove a forced association.

There has been a request to allow removing a forced association if there are no steps. It seems that it was implemented to allow removal of the forced association if the switch plan does not have steps.

You think what you were really looking for is to be able to remove a forced association if the event that has the forced association did not have any related steps in the switch plan. This would be PSO, PDO, and NON events. Forced RDO events would have steps associated to them and you would want the user to move the steps to remove the event association from the switch plan.
