Disable a Team so that it can no longer be selected

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.

Inactive Teams are not listed for selection wherever Teams are an option, and cannot be @mentioned in new comments, SmartDocs, or any other SmartSuite feature. Unlike deleted Teams - which will eventually be permanently deleted and cannot be restored - Inactive Teams can be re-activated at any time.

How do I disable a Team?

If you've decided that you want to just disable a Team, 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.

Here, you have two options for Deactivating a Team:

  1. Select Inactive in the STATUS column of the Teams list.

  2. Click on the Team name, change STATUS to Inactive in the Team modal, and click Update Team.

What if I change my mind and want to reactivate my Team?

Just change the STATUS of the Team back to Active and you're back in business - the Team is instantly back and available for selection.
