We deactivated some contacts and now they cannot be found.  Can you tell me where they should be and  how to reactivate?

Thanks

Have you tried using an Advanced Find to locate them? Search for Contacts with a Status of Inactive

stacko,

Thanks, I just ran the Advanced Find and still do not see the client most recently deactivated.

I also deactivated a contact with my System Admin role and it also does not show in the Inactive Contacts.

(I can do this on our test system and it works fine)

Are you saying you can see some deactivated contacts and not others?

Yes, it appears that contacts deactivated a few months ago can be seen but today any contact deactivated cannot be seen in the Inactive Contacts view.

Perhaps a clue - recently there were a number of changes to security roles to restrict sales people from doing certain actions but why would my System Adminstrator role also have the same result (i.e. contacts I deactivate do not appear as active or inactive)

They just seem to disappear

Well I'm pretty sure they aren't disappearing. This definately sounds like a Security Role issue. Have you tried doing the advanced find on the server with the system admin log on?

Yeah, I do all my work using System Admin.  Will dig a litter deeper into the Security Roles and see what I find there.

Let me know if you think of anything else I can try - will let you know what I find.

Thanks for your help

Whilst I'm confident that it is some sort of Security Role issue, you could compare two contacts in the database directly. The first a deactivated one that you can find, the second one that you can't.

If they both look the same then you can be even more confident that it is a security role issue.

Thanks, after reviewing the security roles and contacts more carefully we found the problem.
