Delete custom fields in bulk
« on: December 20, 2016, 07:25:46 am »

I work in a cooperative and we are starting to use CiviCRM. But we are not starting with a vanilla CiviCRM, for different reasons it has been very convenient to get a "copy" from another organization very similar to us. Many of the functionality and type of customers are the same, so it's very handy to reuse their work so far.

The problem is that not all the stuff they have is useful for us. Now I have everything in place and know perfectly well what we need and what we don't need, so I am planning to delete all the stuff that we don't want and here is where my problem comes and my suggestion:

I am struggling to delete all the custom fields we don't want as i have to go one by one clicking on "delete" wait for the pop up to load than click ok and again wait for the pop up to load. The same applies to Import/export mappings and profiles (and probably more but these are the only ones I am trying to delete).

So it would be great to have the typical tick boxes and "Apply action to all" in order to make the whole thing a one click job.

Cheers and thanks for your great work.
