What happens when I mark a person as deceased in Mira?

Magnus Bratt

When you mark a person as deceased, that person will be flagged as deceased. She will no longer be included in queries, unless you specifically opt to include deceased.

We will set contact preferences to do not want email, mail, phone, and SMS with the comment that the person is marked as deceased, and we will unsubscribe the person from any newsletters.

We will clear any postal addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and alternative contact information, and clear the field Shares address with (“sambo”).

Finally, if the person had a users (access to log in to the system), that user will be deleted.

N.B. after a person has been marked as deceased, it is not possible to undo. If you need to restore a person marked as deceased, contact Mira and we will help you.

Bonus question: Why shouldn’t I delete persons that are deceased?

If you delete a person, you run the risk of that person being re-created manually or re-imported from another system. If you delete a person you also loose history such as how many attendants did a certain event or course have, etc. You should therefore not delete deceased persons, but instead mark them as deceased.
