What if you have a Team you no longer need? You can either make that Team Inactive, or you can just delete it. Only Members with the Administrator role have permission to take either action.

If you've decided that you want to delete a Team, just follow these simple steps:

  1. Log in as a Member (with the Administrator role).

  2. Click on your user profile icon in the upper-right-hand corner of the SmartSuite interface to open your user profile options.

  3. Click Workspace Administration in the menu.

  4. Select the Manage Teams tab.

  5. Click the Team's name.

  6. Click the options (...) menu, in the Team dialog.

  7. Select Delete Team.

  8. Give the Team a unique name.

  9. Add anyone that should be on the team to Selected Users.

  10. Click Create New Team.

The Manage Teams page is shown below, with an arrow indicating the location of the Delete Team function in the options panel...

Before the Team is deleted, SmartSuite will ask you to confirm the action. See the screenshot below...

What if I change my mind and want my deleted Team back?

You're in luck - Teams are placed in the SmartSuite Recycle Bin when they are deleted. If nobody has permanently deleted the Team from the bin, it can be restored by clicking the Restore button.

A few things to consider when restoring a deleted Team:

  • Only Administrators can restore Teams that have been deleted - Team Owners cannot delete their own Team unless they also have the Administrator role.

  • The Team will be restored with the settings it had prior to deletion.

  • If Member profiles that were part of the Team have been deleted, they will not be restored - only active Members will be part of the Team.
