Delete Records Quicker

Is there any way to delete records quicker? Right now when I delete records I select 200 records to delete and it takes like 20 minutes. I have over half a million records and the occasional required cleanups take forever.

Deleting records as a task is a feature request here:

I’m not sure how that is any different then just filtering and then selecting all the record and clicking delete? What would be helpful is of it either does it quicker, or you can delete using scheduled tasks so when I have half a million records like I currently have in one of the apps I can delete it without having to be present.

Hi Moe, we're working on a "Batch delete" feature that will work similarly to our Batch update process. So you can delete by query. Would that help?
