Create ability to add "delete" and "Disassociate" buttons on embedded Gridviews

Currently in the new OpenPages UI you can create Add Object buttons and Associate Object buttons on the embedded Grid views.  For example, you are in a Test Plan and want to add a Test Result object.  You can add a button right on the grid view to add or associate a new Test Result.  You cannot, however, add a button to delete or dis-associate the object. 

To delete , you currently have to go to the grid view, find the item you are looking for and delete it.  This increases the risk you will select the wrong item.  If it was right on the embedded list view you would already see what you want to delete. 

The ask is to be able to check items in the list in the embedded Grid view and then select the "Delete" or "Disassociate" button.

To disassociate, you need to load all associate object,  go to the three dots on the right and select "Choose already selected" and finally un-check the item that is associated.  Not only is this not at all intuitive, it is a lot of clicks.

    Agree this would be simpler for the user to be able to disassociate from the grid directly rather than deselect in the selection window.

    This makes sense,


    now splitting the associate and disassociate in 2 actions, will impact all the views as they would need to be updated to add a disassociate button on all the views
