You can also delete Group Records from the database. Note: deleting a Group record is permanent and cannot be undone. Groups are primarily used as a way to to group related individuals who share an address, and a common reason for deleting a group record is that individuals at a particular address no longer want to receive paper mail.
Deleting a Group Record dissociates all of the contacts within it. However, the individual Contact Records within the group will remain in your database. The difference will be that the deleted Group Record is removed from their profiles. When you delete a Group record, all of the personal Group details (including notes, custom fields, documents, etc.) will also be permanently deleted.
To delete a group record:
- Navigate to Contacts > Group Records.
