Deleting Custom Fields

Table 21. Availability - Legacy plans


Overview

On Business accounts, the account owner and all account admins can delete both account- and space-level custom fields. On Enterprise accounts only account owners can delete any custom field by default, but they can give account admins the permission to do that. Additionally, on all accounts, space admins can delete space-level custom fields that belong to their space.

You can completely delete any custom field along with its values from the account, including any account-level field that isn't shared with you in the Account Management section.

Note

Account-wide custom field management doesn't display custom fields that belong to personal and locked spaces.

If you're a space admin, you can also delete space-level custom fields from the custom field management view in your space.

Tip

On this page, you'll learn how to delete custom fields from the account. If you're looking for a way to remove a field from a folder, project, or space without permanently deleting it, check out the Removing and Hiding Custom Fields page.
