Account Owners cannot delete Space if it is created by another user

 

Currently space is only allowed to be deleted by Space admin, the account owner has no right to delete it, this is frustrating.

 

Account owner should be able to delete any Spaces regardless he or she create it or not.

 

Steps to reproduce:

  • User A (account owner)
  • User B (regular user)
  • User B creates Space X, User B is now Admin of Space X
  • User A attempts to delete Space X

Current result

There is no any menu to User A, so User A can delete Space X

 

Expected result

User A must be able to delete any spaces in the account

Up Voting!  While spaces are great for organization, the account owner needs to have rights to delete, move, see, etc. to Spaces.

Agreed!

As the account owner, you do have the option of deciding who gets to create Spaces.

Hey guys, thanks so much for your feedback!

Account admins on the Enterprise subscription can choose if regular users should have the right to create Spaces or not.

To do so:

1. Click on your profile picture in the upper-right corner of the workspace.
2. Click “Account Management”.
3. Select the “Security” tab.
4. Scroll to the “Create Spaces” section and choose one of the following two options for who can create Spaces in the account:

  • Owner and administrators only
  • Regular users, owner and administrators

5. Click “Save changes”

In case you limit the ability to create Spaces to the owner and account admins, these will be the only people who can delete Spaces as well.

Please let me know if that helped 👐

Hi Lisa

 

We don't concern who creates Space but we do concern the system doesn't allow  the space to be deleted by Account Owner if it is created by other users

 

Regarding Enterprise subscription, the issue is quite BUG rather the optional/enterprise feature

as you see in Security Options in Enterprise Account,   whether you choose 

  • Owner and Administrator only  (I sense this is default value)
  • Regular users, owner  and administrators

 

Account owner or administrator ALWAYS have the right to  create and delete space,  

in other word, whether options you choose,  the user who creates space, always have right to delete space

Create & Delete space should be DEFAULT behavior regardless the pricing tier accounts belong to, if user is an owner

 

To be specific about security tab, it is used to controls whether regular user will be able to create and delete space.  It is not to control who can create or delete space as separate permissions 

 

Please consider the fix for the issue.

 

Thank you,

Atthakorn

I have to agree, the Owner should be able to delete / manage any space. This is the situation I now find myself in (I'm new here):

  • Started trial account and created a space to try things out in.
  • Transitioned to a paid account 
  • Changed ownership of the account to my work account
  • Deleted original owner account used for the trial

Problem: 

  • I now have a space in my account that I cannot delete, as there is no space admin for that space

Same problem, this is really frustrating.  Especially when a user that created a space is no longer available to close it out.  Admins should absolutely have the ability to delete spaces users have created.  This feels like a bug more than a lack of feature.

Hi Justin Strasser, thank you for your feedback here. It's been passed on to the Product team.

There are currently no plans to implement this suggestion into the short-term roadmap. If anything changes, I'll let you know.
