The constituent summary & constituent detail reports both contain deleted contacts - this is 4.7.21 (and 4.7.23) under Drupal. I verified the problem on this demo site. This doesn't seem right to me - is this a bug or WAD? Either way, any advice on how to remove them from these reports? If a bug I will report it, of course, but I wonder whether I'm missing something obvious here!


I think the answer is that the contacts probably haven't been deleted but are in Trash. You can search for deleted contacts in Advanced Search>Search Settings where you'll see a box labeled "Search in Trash". On completion of the search, click on Actions and they can be deleted permanently there. They will probably not then appear in your reports.

    This is true - but "soft deleted" contacts didn't appear in reports before 4.7.15. This is a new bug since 4.7.15-ish – Jon G - Megaphone Tech Aug 15 '17 at 19:09
  • I'm aware of that but the client doesn't want to permanently delete them. Anyway, these reports shouldn't show deleted contacts - it's a bug as Jon says – Andy Clark Aug 16 '17 at 7:59
