Why can't I delete my "Personal Space"...

the last thing I need in Wrike is a useless folder sticking up at the top that I am not using. I get including it in the rollout, but we should have the ability to delete it just like other spaces. All it's doing now is creating clutter.... unless I am missing some specific functionality of it, I can always make it again.

The continuing bloat is real, Wrike is moving towards "warm tea" - trying to cover everyone's preferences, and making a product nobody wants instead.

I get what they're trying to do, it would just be great if it wasn't a mandatory thing... It's just not being used by me at all.

Agreed.  I have a personal folder (that I can now convert into a space if I want).  I don't need two.

Hi everyone, thanks a lot for your feedback on the new Wrike functionality, Spaces. You're right, currently, it's impossible to delete a Personal Space. I passed your feedback to the relevant Product team.

I just wanted to mention one thing about the Spaces that I personally find very useful - Bookmarks. I also had a personal folder before, which I converted to a Space. Thanks to Bookmarks, I have access to all my work and for me, it's a lot easier than using a Personal Folder. In the Bookmarks section, I have links to both Wrike items (a couple of Dashboards and Reports) and external links that I use daily.

Please let me know what you think about it - I'll be happy to discuss 🙌

+1 this thread. As the Project Manager, when people leave I inherit their Personal Space. So now I have a list of Personal spaces that I can't get rid of or rename. My Wrike account is quite cluttered now, and it's drives me bonkers.

I have about 20 extra personal spaces I've inherited when users have left the company. Please create a delete function asap or it might be time to find another project management software to use. The clutter drives me nuts.

Hi Jordan Davidson,

Welcome to the Community!

While it currently isn't possible to delete your own Personal space, you can delete the "inherited" Personal spaces of your former Wrike users.

Click to open the inherited Personal space and then look for the three-dot menu in the upper right corner:

Please give it a try and let us know if you have any questions! 😄
