Delete a space

When you no longer want to use a space, you can delete it. When a space is deleted, you can't recover it.


  • You can only delete a space if you have the Space Manager role.
  • When you delete a space, all messages and tasks in the space are deleted. Permissions on Drive files are removed, but the file isn't deleted.
  • Once a space has been deleted, you can't recover it.
  • If you're the last space manager and want to leave, you must make someone else the space manager or delete the space.

  3. Open the space that you want to delete.
