To my Knowledge, mass delete can be performed on Standard objects only.

 

Consider the following when using mass delete:

  • You can only delete up to 250 items at one time.
  • When you delete a record, any associated records that display on that record's related lists are also deleted.
  • Accounts and contacts associated with cases cannot be deleted.
  • Partner accounts with partner users cannot be deleted.
  • Contacts enabled for Self-Service, and their associated accounts, cannot be deleted.
  • When deleting products, all related price book entries are deleted with it.
  • Products on opportunities cannot be deleted, but they can be archived.
  • When you delete activities:
    • Any archived activities that meet the conditions are also deleted.
    • Requested meetings aren't included in the mass-delete until they're confirmed and automatically converted to events.
  • The child events of a recurring event are not displayed in the list of possible items to delete, but they are deleted along with their associated event series.
  • Deleting a master solution does not delete the translated solutions associated with it. Instead, each translated solution becomes a master solution.
  • Deleting a translated solution removes the association with its master solution.
