There may be situations where you need to delete many records at one time.  You can submit a work request to have this done for you. 

Work Request Requirements

  • To do this you need to submit a "General" work request
  • You must indicate the Screen from which the records should be deleted in the work request title
  • You must include a list of the record IDs. You can get these IDs by running an "Export Data" report or via Web Services
    • If using "Export Data" to retrieve IDs, select the option "Record and DSA IDs" to include the ID column as part of your export.


Please note: we will not delete fewer than 10 records on a screen, given that no time efficiencies can be achieved compared to manual deletion in such cases.

Warning: This deletion is permanent.  Please make certain that every record whose ID you've included for deletion should be deleted.  It might also be a good idea to run an Export Data report to back up the deleted records.
