and am still getting more ECM assignments. I retried everything (setting changes at all levels, deleting from the worktodo file, unreserving, ect.), but it still won't stop the server from assigning more ECM.
Did you change this worker preference on the client (at your desktop) or on the server. Server changes are NOT immediate.
