Untagging contacts – slow and risky?

We had to put a limit on untagging operations. Currently you can delete the maximum of 100 tags at a a time.
The reasons for that:

Deleting tags is an slow process in Highrise. One unatgging needs 2-5 seconds. If you have selected 10 contacts each with 3 tags to remove that equals to 30 untag operations, which currently takes 1-3 minutes to complete.

The other aspect is related to security to avoid accidental delete of tags in mass.

We are working on a better solution at this moment.
It will be user-friendly and it will allow to get the maximum out of given resources.
Stay with us, we’ll be back with some hot news on this topic.
