How to remove follower from many records at once

When I imported the data for our company's crm the system automatically added me as a follower of all the imported records.

How can I remove myself (or any other user) from the followers of all the records (e.g. from all the customers) ?

I have full access to the database so any solution that includes running a psql query would be ok for me.

I tried using import to mass update but it seems like you can only add followers this way, not remove.

Go to > Settings > Email > Follower

Here you can delete followers from products or partner or all.....

This is quite an easy task - just need to get the right access levels.

To delete a staff member as a follower:

You have to be logged on as the user i.e the user must be made active.

The user also needs to have the following access levels - Application / Administration must be 'Settings'.

To remove the instances where they are follower:

1. Go to Settings / Technical / Email / Followers, a list will be given of the documents that the user is a follower on.

2. You may only want to display i.e. 2000 items at a time (when I tried to show 'Unlimited' the system froze / was very slow).

3. Select the items displayed using the checkbox - top left hand side.

4. Using the <More> dropdown menu select 'Delete'

5. Continue until all items have been deleted for that user.

Once this is complete - make the user inactive again.
