In the event that a student leaves your parish, you can delete their records from your database.
Deleting a record removes it permanently from your database. To hide the record without removing it, make it inactive instead.
You can delete student records by navigating to Information > Students.
Information on the Student Sacraments window is erased when you delete a student, but the information on the Sacramental Register window remains.
- Locate the student record you want to delete.
- At the top, click Delete Student.
Depending on your settings, an additional dialog box displays. Select an option in the General Reason for Deletion list, and click Use/OK.
This additional dialog box only displays if the Ask for Reason on Significant Changes option is selected in the Initial Setup window.
- To print the student information, click Yes. To delete without printing, click No.
- If this record is not being used in another program, you can keep the data for future use.
