Remove a Team

A team was created by a former employee that needs to be deleted from our Asana account. How do I do that if he was the administrator?

Hi @Jay_Matheney and welcome to the Forum! :wave:

Any Team member can delete a Team, so If any current employee is still a member of that Team, he/she should be able to delete it following these steps:

  • Click on the arrow icon next to the Team’s Name
  • Select “Edit Team Settings”
  • Navigate to the “Advanced” Tab
  • Click on “Delete team” at the left bottom of the dialog box

You can find more information about Deleting a Team in this handy article: Team basics: create, join, and manage teams | Product guide • Asana

Please note that deleting a team will delete all of its projects, including projects people have marked as private that you may not see.

If nobody is able to do it, I would recommend you to reach out to our Support Team by following these steps. They will be able to assist you with removing the Team.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any follow-up question!

The team included only the former employee, so no one else is a member. (It may have been set up in error.) Regardless, it just needs to be deleted. Can someone help with that?

  1. Access the Team Settings: Head over to your sidebar and hover your mouse over the Team you’re looking to delete and click on “…” icon next to the team’s name
  2. Select Edit Team Settings
  3. Navigate to the “Advanced” tab
  4. Select “Delete the Team”

thanks man, it worked.

Hey Natalia, I couldn’t find “delete team” under the “edit team settings > advanced” tab in my trial version. Is this function not available under the trial version? Just joined a new company and i’m one of the first to use the app- though I’ve been an asana user at my previous co’s.

I am having the same issue— there is no “delete the team” option under the advanced tab. My company has a paid Asana subscription. Please help!

Me neither. No “delete” button under Team Settings → Advanced

Hi @Grace_Hoffman and @Tomas_Trnka! If you don’t see the option to delete a Team is probably because you currently have a Workspace and not an Organization. A workspace currently allow you to have one team and it can’t be deleted. You can confirm if you have a Workspace by clicking your profile picture and selecting About my Workspace. I hope this helps!
