In the event that students leave 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.

Useful Information

Information on the Student Sacraments window is erased when you delete a student, but the information on the Sacramental Register window remains.

 To delete a student's record
  1. Locate the student record you want to delete.
  2. At the top, click Delete Student.
