Users with Delete permission can delete individual records in HubSpot, including contacts, companies, deals, tickets, custom objects, and calls. Users with Bulk delete permission can also delete records in bulk.
Click the name of your record.
In the left panel, click the Actions dropdown menu, then select Delete.
If you're deleting a contact, in the dialog box, select an option:
Delete this contact with the ability to restore within 90 days: the deleted contact will go to the recycle bin where you can restore it within 90 days.
Permanently delete this contact and all its associated content to follow privacy laws and regulations: the contact will be permanently deleted and you'll be unable to restore it. You will automatically receive an email confirmation after you delete the contact. Learn more about permanently deleting contacts to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Please note: permanent deletions were previously referred to as GDPR deletions.
You can delete a single record or delete records in bulk from each object's index page.
At the top of the table, click delete Delete.
In the dialog box, enter the number of records to delete, then click Delete.
If your contacts or companies are members of a list, you can also delete the records from the list. If you want to delete the list but not the records, learn how to delete a list.
You can also automatically delete contact records via a workflow based on certain criteria. Other objects (e.g., deals, tickets, companies) cannot be deleted via workflows.
