  8. The Delete button is greyed out.


The system doesn't allow you to delete pre-delivered statuses. You can only delete the custom statuses you created.

If this is a custom status you added, the Delete button is unabled because currently there are leads using this status in your system.


If you don't wish to use the pre-delivered status, you can deactivate it by deselecting the "Active" checkbox.

If you want to delete a custom status, you need to update the leads currently using this status.
