Why can't I delete this campaign?

We don't use campaigns, this is the only one in our database, and I need to delete it because it is of Record Type where I can't uninstall the Volunteer package because of it.  Thank you!

Hi Tim,

Can you check below links.

Might be you need to check permission on profile.

Hi Tim,

One way to delete using Developer Console is to first execute your query
SELECT Id from Campaign where id='salesforce record id'.
Then highlight all the result rows and click on the Delete Row button at the bottom.

Hope above information was helpful.

Hi - tried it, got: [object Object]: insufficient access rights on object id

Note also it has no Edit/Delete button (I am SysAdmin w/ full privileges).  This row is unlike any I've ever seen, it seems indestructible!

That's it!  Marketing User has to be checked, somehow mine was unchecked.  I never would have found that. Endless Google searches didn't find it either.  Thank you!
