How to bulk delete custom objects?

Hi,

I am looking to bulk delete all records that I have added to my custom object. Could someone please suggest a way that I can do this?

Thanks, Emma

Hi Emma, 

I reccomend Dataloader.io - especially if you are new to bulk deletion. 

Simply run a report that contains all the record ID's of the custom object records - export to excel, and then upload the file to dataloader.io

Here is a link: https://dataloader.io/

Thanks!

Hi,

You can use either data loader or workbench to perform the same.

Hi, 

Extract all the record Ids from the custom object using Dataloader, WorkBench or Using a query in your developer console. 
Then you can delete these ids with using any of the above mentioned tools.

Using Data Loader and work bench needs to have the Ids in a CSV file.

It depends on your scenario. With Skyvia data integration tool (https://skyvia.com/connectors/salesforce) you have two options:
1) Use Skyvia Import and "Delete operation"
2) Use Skyvia Query to create a subset of custom objects you need to delete.

Please provide more detail, so that I could advise accordingly.
