The bulk deletion feature helps you to maintain data quality and manage the consumption of system storage in Microsoft Dynamics 365 by deleting data that you no longer need.

For example, you can delete the following data in bulk:

  • Stale data.

  • Data that is irrelevant to the business.

  • Unneeded test or sample data.

  • Data that is incorrectly imported from other systems.

With bulk deletion you can perform the following operations:

  • Delete data across multiple entities.

  • Delete records for a specified entity.

  • Receive email notifications when a bulk deletion finishes.

  • Delete data periodically.

  • Schedule the start time of a recurring bulk delete.

  • Retrieve the information about the failures that occurred during a bulk deletion.
