The column Flag shows special properties of entries. Some are set manually, others automatically:
|When trying to delete any entry with this flag, there will be an explicit warning that needs to be confirmed. After that however, it is possible to remove this entry from the table. In BCS: node is locked
|A flag set by the editor or user to indicate that the entry can be archived and is set via the relevant option in the entry dialog box. The entry is not actually activated simply by setting this flag. However, after the entry has been archived, the color of the flag will change to green to indicate the entry can be deleted now. When the entry is archived, one of these two flags is displayed:
|This entry is currently archived
|This entry is archived

|Indicates that this entry is a personal entry of a specific user. The OK button to save changes is hidden, therefore such entries cannot be changed by another user.
|Invisible to other user. This flag is like the normal personal but such entries cannot be opened by other users.
|Ready to send
|This flag indicates this entry is ready to be broadcasted. With the corresponding configuration only entries with this flag can be placed into a broadcast schedule module. If a user wants to delete such an entry, a warning message appears that has to be confirmed to actually execute the deletion.
|Usually the ready flag has a stronger meaning than this flag, but customer can use and name the flag as they want. The second level of transmission readiness: this flag can only be set by an authorized person and indicates that the entry is now completely ready for transmission.
|This flag is automatically shown when a text file is attached to the entry (that can be viewed in the Presentation tab)
