Can anyone point me to best practice or recipes for dealing with staff contacts when they leave a company that is running CiviCRM, especially when the person may have created content in both Drupal and in Civi?

The simplest approach would be to block the Drupal account, no other action is required.

If you must delete the Drupal account for a given reason, make sure you select ‘Delete the account and make its content belong to the anonymous user’, otherwise the content created by this user will also be deleted.

    I would just leave the record as is in order to preserve that person's history in the organization. Maybe create a tag or group to identify those people. Mar 1, 2022 at 21:58
