Contacts: how to delete a group

Hi all,

I have created a group called ‘test’ to play around with, and now I cannot find a way to get rid of it again.
Of course I googled for it, and found older entries that say a group cannot be deleted anymore, which I can’t belive.

Sorry if it is a silly question, but I just can’t find the trick.


Nextcloud 21.0.3 / contacts app: 4.0.1

Using the search function before creating a new post is always a good idea :wink:

Thanks for your reply :slight_smile:
As said, I googled, but could hardly believe that a group cannot just be removed/renamed. But now I know this is the case, and that’s fine for me then. Your hint there is it for me: remove all users out of a group, and on next login the group has dissapeared.

However, this solution shows the dimensions in which folks of nextcloud think. While this is the way to go for 5 group members, it’s a bit inconvenient for 5.000.

Also, to add an OT thought: mark the first mail in a mailbox, then shift-click the last entry, and all mails are marked. So far so good. But then delete it…? Works here at a speed of 1-2 mails per second. Is again nice if you want to delete 5 mails. But what if you have a mailbox with 20.000 lines - wait 20.000 seconds until the job is completed? uhh… maybe no :wink:

Bottom line: if you’re thinking in small dimensions, NC works mostly fine. For bigger numbers it might not be the right tool

Not yet, anyway. These problems are easy to remediate if somebody bothers to spend some minutes to relevantly improve its code.
