Ability to delete fields without having to delete sent mailings/queries

At the moment if you want to delete a field you need to delete all sent mailings, contact lists and queries that reference that field. This makes it near impossible to do.

It would be great if you could delete a field without this dependency.

How will this idea be used?

With large enterprise customers, a lot of fields get used for a period of time and then are surplus to requirements. It would be ideal to then remove these after a period of zero use. Deleting old mailings etc is not workable from a recording point of view.
as a note, the more fields = slower performance. Notably with the new guidelines around performance if the number of fields >255.

What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
What is the idea priority? High

    Thanks for the idea! We can research this idea to see what it would take and will continue to watch the votes to help us prioritize.

    Been using WCA for over 5 years now and have been wanting this functionality. Have at least 15 useless, empty fields in our database that haven't been used in 2+ years.

    Ditto for Relational Tables. We are being told that we need to delete Relational Tables instead of adding any new ones, which puts us in a really tough spot because our relational tables have been used in hundreds of different places.
