When I uploaded an update to our XM Directory, a field name was changed. I now have two embedded data fields for the same thing (one is no longer current). Is there a way to delete all instances of an embedded data field or do I have to go into each one of my contacts and delete it?

    I actually found a way to do this in XM Directory now.

    I think you will have to do it using the API.

    We're just cleaning up some of ours using Directory Options -> Manage embedded data, then selecting the field you wish to delete and Delete.

    Has anyone been able to delete more than 1 field at a time through the manage embedded data option? Every time I do, I get an error message, but it worked when I only selected 1.
