Deleting Projects

Table 129. Availability - Legacy plans


All users except collaborators can delete projects by sending them to the Recycle bin. Only account admins can permanently delete projects.


On Enterprise accounts, the types of users who are allowed to use this functionality may differ due to user types settings.

When you delete a project that has tasks, subtasks, subfolders, and subprojects:

  • If those items are only located in that project then they're deleted when the parent project is deleted.

  • If those items are stored in additional locations, then they'll continue to live in those additional locations even after the project is deleted.

Delete a project

Deleting a project moves it to your Recycle bin where it can be permanently erased or restored. This can be done in two ways.

  1. Navigate to the space containing the relevant project.

  2. Right-click a project from the left-hand navigation panel.

  3. Select Delete 1 from the drop-down list that appears.

  4. Click Yes 2 in the confirmation window that appears.


Alternatively you can:

  1. Open a project's info panel.

  2. Click the three-dot menu button 1 in the info panel’s upper right-hand corner.

  3. Select Delete project 2 from the drop-down list that appears.

  4. Click Yes in the confirmation window that appears.



Can I delete a subproject in the same way?

Yes, delete a subproject exactly as you'd delete a project.

Can I permanently delete a project?

Yes, admin users can permanently delete projects. After navigating to the Recycle bin they can right-click a project title in the left-hand navigation panel and click Erase. Alternatively they can open the project info panel from the Recycle bin and click Erase in the top right corner of the panel.
