I had my network configured like 2 years ago. 
In the household there are 7 people. 

Some of the kids have girlfriend/boyfriend. 
Add also friends to the calculation, and soon there are like 30-40 people. 
*phones
*pads
*Playstations
*TV
*Laptops
*ETC

There are MANY devices that are no longer active in the network, and some of them will never be active again due to replacement. 
I really think there should be a list where you can mark multiple devices and then click remove.

  @MalteMops 

 

I am in the same boat. Probably 100+ devices that will never be connected again, or that I'd like to be notified if they do. I don't want to reset the whole network because I have around 30 devices configured in 7 different parental control groups with different bedtimes and reactions. Would be a pain to set it all up again.

 

Multi-select to delete clients is likely easy to implement and would be extremely helpful!

  @TP-Link In my case it is needed when WiFi device disconnects from the network (you know about the case with X90) and I want to connect it again.

so create simple delete button it is topic since 2018 ;)

I would love this! I can't even see my guest network in the app overview except if a client connects to it (but maybe that's normal?). I can see all the online/offline clients on both main and gust network if I click the plus sign on blacklist, but I can only remove the ones on main.

  @ChrisAhlund It is normal to see only the offline users from the Main network. Don't have an idea why R&D decided to do it like that.

If you don't own M5 (currently the only supported Deco), don't have hopes for improvements.

  @loboent   A new feature to batch delete old devices is  definitey needed. Currently my finger is getting blisters when it takes 4 clicks/touch  to delete one record. It tsake me about 30 minutes a month.

I hope there will be an automatic solution. For example, automatically delete after 30 days of not being online.
