I want to bulk delete an activity (activity ID 65) across all contacts within one group.

I want anyone outside this group to keep the activity.

Is this possible? The search criteria in find activities is limited.

CIVICRM 4.6.27 - Drupal 7

Thanks, Andy

Try advanced search.

Search for contacts in group "x" with completed activities of type "y"

From search settings=- set "Display results as" to activities.

You should be able to delete the activities from the search results options.
