If you need to edit the name or code of a Package Type you can do so using the edit icon by a package’s name. You can access this from Setup/ Project Settings/Package Types.

Deleting Package Types

You can delete package types but only if they haven’t been used yet.  This can be helpful if you’ve dozens of types and want to clean up the list by reducing the amount available. You can see if they haven’t been used by rolling the mouse over a row. If the bin icon appears to the right, then that package can be deleted.

  1. Hover the mouse over the package type you want to delete to see if the delete icon appears. 
  2. Click the Delete icon and then confirm the deletion.
The Delete Package Icon.
