About the Recycle Bin

When a record is deleted, the record and all the related information are moved into a temporary holding area called the Recycle Bin. Records in the Recycle Bin are held for 30 days before they are automatically and permanently deleted.

For example, if a user deletes an Account then that account will be moved into the Recycle Bin, including all Contacts, Contracts, Campaigns, and Events that are related to the account.


  • View or permanently delete records owned by the user's team(s) (including secondary team(s)
  • View or permanently delete records in any child team of the user's team(s) 

What Related Information Is Deleted?

The following related information is moved into the Recycle Bin when a user deletes a record from a Built-in or CRM object:

Object Inheritance

Inherited Objects have special behavior in Delete actions.

Delete Records from the Parent Object

When a record is deleted from the Parent Object:

Subform Object

An Object that is the target of a Lookup typically displays the Related Records in a Subform.

When the target object and the related Subform object have different Recycle Deleted Records settings in the Object Properties, the guidelines described below apply, whether or not the related records are actually displayed in a subform. (The relationship exists, even if it is not clearly visible in an Object Subform.)


These deletion guidelines for Subforms apply to Custom Objects only.
They do not apply to Built-in Objects or CRM Objects
(Those rules are explained above.)

In these examples, the related objects are named as follows:

  • Base Object
  • Subform Object

Impact on Data

Merging Records

When two records are merged, the secondary record is moved to Recycle Bin, but all related information will not be moved to recycle bin. Instead, related information from the secondary record is moved to the primary record.

If a user tries to restore the secondary record, it will be restored but without all its related information.

Importing Data

Lets say, we deleted an account named "ABC" and it went into recycle bin. Now, next day if someone imports the same account "ABC", then a new account "ABC" will be created.Now, if user restores the deleted account "ABC", in that case the account will be restored and will not merge with an existing account. Therefore, now there will be two accounts with same name "ABC".

Effect on Data Policy Actions

Data policies will be automatically re-ordered when an action is deleted. When an action is restored, it will be added to the end of the process queue. For example, if these named actions are in the data policy:

  1. "ABC"
  2. "XYZ"
  3. "JKL"

Deleting action named "XYZ", will result in the following actions:

  1. "ABC"
  2. "JKL"

Restoring "XYZ" will adjust the order to the following:

  1. "ABC"
  2. "JKL"
  3. "XYZ"

Impact on Administrators

Effect on Role Based management and Teams

When viewing the Recycle Bin, users will only be able to see records that they have deleted, unless they have Manage Recycle Bin permission.

Effect on Search

Records in the Recycle Bin will not be found during search.

Admin Access

If the administrator has Manage Recycle Bin permission, they can restore any record that they see from the Recycle Bin, regardless of who it was that deleted the record.

Audit Log

The audit log will keep logs for when records are deleted forever and restored.

Purge Deleted Records

Every Friday, the platform will automatically and permanently delete all the records that were put into the Recycle Bin 30-days before.

Working with the Recycle Bin

When records are added to the Recycle Bin, they no longer appear in Views or Reports. The record and all related information are effectively removed from normal processing in the platform.
