Deleting Folders

Table 27. Availability - Legacy plans


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


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 folder that has tasks, subtasks, subfolders, and subprojects:

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

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

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

  3. Select Delete 3 from the list that appears.

  4. Click Yes in the confirmation window.
