Deleting Records in Bulk in Group Edition


It is possible to delete records in bulk on Group Edition?

1) APIs are not enabled 2) We can not write apex class on Group Edition 3) System logs not allowing to execute any script 4) Data loader also need API enable

I was thinking if we have all these restrictions and we have inserted 1000 records on Group Edition and now want to delete them, how is it possible?

If its a custom object, it might be an idea to delete the object, causing the records to be deleted. You could then recreate the object.

I believe the Mass Delete Records option is available to all editions.

Click Your Name | Setup | Data Management | Mass Delete Records.

I have been successful in the past logging a Case with Salesforce Support stating that I am doing data migration and request that the API be turned on for a short time. Try that approach. They will not leave it on and will not repeatedly turn it on for you to support a process - but they will open it up from time to time if you are indeed doing a true data migration or bulk action like this.

You could always use this situation to try and get your client to upgrade to a proper Salesforce edition if they need to do this often.

You can use this free app to mass delete records from the list view.

This app supports Group edition and also it works well for the custom object also. I hope this app will helps you to solve your issue.

Ask support or AE for temporary API access for this operation. They do that for initial migrations into PE. Then use Data Loader. Rup
