Temporary Hold

Temporary Hold

I have some members on Temporary Hold. I can't figure out how to remove that status and get them back in service. The Knowledge Base has one link on removing from Temporary Hold but it leads to a "page not found".


Less urgent, we can't figure out how these people got onto the status in the first place.


Thanks all.


Hello @EllenJ352,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I do apologize for the confusion with the contact status. Your contacts would have had to be changed to a temporary hold manually. To change it back please follow the steps below under the Contacts tab.
