Admins can mass delete records with data loader. Litify recommends exporting records before deletion. You must have delete permission on the records' parent object(s) to complete this process.

  1. Create a CSV file containing the record IDs of the records you are deleting. 
  2. Navigate to data loader and login with your Salesforce credentials. 
  3. Select New Task, then click Delete in the upper-left corner.
  4. Choose the object whose records you are deleting. In this example, we're deleting party records.
  5. Select Next.
  6. Select Upload CSV, then locate the CSV containing the records you are deleting.
  7. Step 3 displays the headers and sample data. Ensure these are accurate, then select Next.
  8. On Step 4, select Save & Run

The next page displays the failed or successful deletion. Each task contains links to information about the errors or successes.
