  • The user will no longer be able to access your Bigin account.
  • Access to Bigin using the deactivated email is prevented.

To activate a User
  1. Login to Bigin with administrator privileges
  2. Go to SetupUsers and Control.
    You will land in the Users tab by default.
  3. Select the Inactive Users view from the drop-down list.

  • If you wish to deactivate a user A who is a super admin, then user A should transfer the super admin status to another user. Now you can deactivate user A.

Delete Users

When an employee (user in Bigin terms) is no longer a part of your organization, you can choose to delete them from your Bigin account.
Only Super Admin can delete a user.

After - effects of deleting a user:
  • All the integrations configured by that user will no longer be available.
  • This action cannot be undone.
  • The records that belong to the deleted user will still be intact. It is recommended to transfer the records to another user before deleting
  • A deleted user cannot be re-invited. Adding a deleted user back in your Bigin account will be considered as a new user.
  • If the user utilizes other Zoho services, deletion of that user from the Bigin account will not interfere with other services.  

Transfer ownership before deleting users

Imagine you have a key team member who's relocating to a different department within your organization. As a result, their current role within your company's Bigin account is no longer required. However, they have ownership of several important records in the system, including ongoing deals and activities vital to the sales team's progress. To ensure a seamless transition and data continuity as your organizatino's admin, you need to manage the user's Bigin account appropriately.

In this scenario, you can transfer the ownership of the user's records to another user within the organization before deleting them from the Bigin account. By transferring ownership of relevant records and associated configurations to another team member, you ensure that the ongoing deals and activities remain in capable hands. This way, your organization can maintain operational efficiency and data integrity even as team members move within the company, contributing to a smooth transition of responsibilities.
You have two possibilities while deleting a user:
  1. Deletion without transferring records
    Select this option when the user being deleted has no associated records or configurations within Bigin at that moment.
  2. Deletion after transferring the records
    1. Transfer and then delete all currently open records under the user's ownership. (Note: Closed records that were owned by the deleted user will still display the user's name).
    2. Transfer and then delete any assignment-related configurations within the record, such as workflows, owner assignments, and field updates.
    3. Transfer and then delete all rule-based criteria associated with the user (if the user is a record owner), including custom views and workflows.
    4. Transfer and then delete all email notifications associated with the deleted user. 
To delete a user
  1. Go to Setup > Users and Controls > Users.
  2. Click the More icon and click Delete this user.

  3. In the Delete user pop-up, do the following:
    1. Select Delete without transfer if you don't want to transfer records.
    2. Select Transfer now if you want to transfer users.
    3. In the Transfer to box, select a user from the dropdown list.
    4. Select Record ownership, Owner assignments, and Criteria.
  4. Click Transfer and Delete.
