Hi

I tried several times to deletes all contacts and in fact (even selecting all contacts and writing the number of contacts to be deleted ) the system only delete a partial number of contacts.

 

Thanks, for some advice

Hi @Mario_Barbosa,


The checkbox at the top of your contacts view will select all the contacts on the current page. A prompt will then appear in the middle of the page offering to select all contacts in the current view - can you confirm if you have selected this option? 

Here is a screenshot for reference:

Hope this helps.

I'm also trying to delete multiple contacts. I messed up while importing and now have many duplicate contacts that I need to fix. I would like to just delete them all and re-import everything correctly, but when I try to do the bulk delete as described, the delete button stays greyed out. Any ideas on what to do next. I really don't want to delete and recreate my account.

Thanks,

Mike

Hey @MikeVigrass,

 

That sounds like it could be a permissions issue. See bulk delete listed here.

 

I'd recommend checking with your super admin to get that changed if that setting is disabled for you.

 

Hope that helps!

The wierd part is that I am the Super Admin and I can't do it.

I'm having the same issue. Seems like there should be an update function when uploading that I either missed or wasn't there.

I haven't found a way to delete all contacts at once, but I got pretty close.  Once you click 'Contacts' it will bring up the list which defaults to 25 per page.  Select 100 from the drop-down at the bottom of the page in order to capture the most you can at one time.  Scroll back to the top of the contacts and click the empty box to select all 100.  You may then click 'Permanently delete'.  A pop-up box will say, "Delete 100 contacts?" and have a gray 100 in the box.  Type 100 over this which verifies you are agreeing to deleting all 100.  Then click Delete and you're done with this page.  If you have 10,000 contacts, this will take much longer than it took for my 1000 contacts.  Good luck.  (Why did I want to delete all 1000?  I uploaded the wrong CV file with old/unvetted information.  Oops!)
