Soft Delete
I'd like to have the ability to right click on an item and soft delete it. The item stays in the log, but won't be played. The reverse can be done to activate the song again. Good feature when presenters have to change the hour timings and songs played. Please vote.
"Available as of PlayIt Live 2.13"

This is feature which some of the commercial applications have and would be very useful.

For items with expired kill dates, it would be great to have a full delete as well. Maybe make soft/hard deletes part of the left-click audition window?

@Joe - I think having delete right on the log could be trouble for some setups. Maybe not a concern if you're the only person using the software, but when I worked in radio, we had a staff of 3 full-time jocks and a handful of part-timers for weekends. While we didn't use PlayIt Live, our software did not allow users to delete tracks right off the log. You wouldn't want to risk someone deleting something they shouldn't. The extra step of having to go into track management isn't entirely foolproof either, but because it's so deliberate, it cuts down on the chance of someone deleting something by mistake.

The equivalent in Zetta is a Skip button/icon next to the segue icon. Click it and it toggles on/off when the scheduled play time is not reached yet, or stays as a Skipped icon if the time has passed, and the unplayed skipped item can be dragged down lower in the log to an unplayed time.
