Inactive Reasons

It is occasionally necessary to set accounts and contacts to an inactive status. When doing so, a reason should also be selected so that it is immediately clear to all users why a certain account and/or contact was set to inactive status in the first place. Inactive Reasons can be configured under Configuration>Profiles>Inactive Reasons. When this path is selected, the Inactive Reasons screen displays.
