Sharing is caring!

At least once, we encountered a situation where we needed to delete bulk data from Salesforce quickly. It is worth noting that Salesforce has its button for bulk erasing data. To bulk delete in Lightning, the Bulk Delete button can be used. In the List View, we can select an item and then press the Bulk Delete button. The documents are then removed from the organization. This is for Lightning; If we want to use it as a classic, we have to use button JS.

In this blog, we will show you how to delete selected records (bulk delete) with the press of a button in the Salesforce Lightning component.
