Delete contact option in workflows

Include an option in workflows to delete a contact. So if they meet the criteria to be entered into the workflow, it would then delete them from our database entirely. This would be helpful for those who come to our site and fill out forms with information which is a 100% clear sign that we do not want to market / sell to them in any way.

We need it, too. We have employee accounts from a third-party platform being created as new contacts in Hubspot via a custom integration. And deleting them manually when we remember to do it is such as drag...

Totally in agreement, me much would please Hubspot he was adding the option of " Delete a contact " in the workflows to be able to erase the contacts of my platform that already they do not apply to my services. In this case, I believe that tendre that to do it manually but would be excellent that were adding this option.

I could use this as well. Anyone able to automate this? I have my smart-lists made and can do the manual deletion - but would love a workflow for this. 

 

Assuming based on the dates here that the answer is likely no.

with GDPR around the corner this would be useful.

Very interested in the same topic.

Nothing I've seen upto today's date is suitable for auto deletion.

Interested to hear of updates if this situation changes.

Exactly what jm said. I want a "still interested?" email to go out after 10 months since last engagement. Then delete if they are not engaging/interested in working with us anymore.

 I would like this option as well. Especially for GDPR purposes, and specifically the "right to be forgotten". 

 

I wonder though, if it's likely that we will get this since we are paying per contact Smiley Happy

Agreed that this would be handy. We are currently trying to find a workflow that will "purge" unwanted contacts on a perodic basis as an automated process. We have very clear defined qualification for these lists, but the manual element could so easily be done away with.

 This feature would be very helpful for us as well. In our case, we have a lot of test accounts that are created from our team and that I have to delete manually from a list. If this could be done from a workflow, it would save a lot of time.

This is a great idea! Plus the ability to have the contact auto-exported would be cool too.
