Deleting a board

In this article we will walk you through deleting a board you have ownership. 


Permissions Overview

The first step of deleting a board is verifying you have permission. If you did not create the board, you will not be able to delete it. Only boards you have created, you will be able to delete. This means, the only boards you will be able to delete are the boards found under the "My Boards" section of the boards module sub-menu. This includes boards that have been shared or published globally:

Figure 1: the "My Boards" section of the boards sub-menu

If you delete a board that has been shared with other users, or published globally, deleting it will remove it from all of the users who had access to it previously

It will NOT delete any copies of the board that people created and modified, however. 

Steps to delete a board

To delete a board you own:

  1. Navigate to the "My Boards" section of the boards sub-module
  2. Open the board you wish to delete
  3. Open the "Action sub-menu" button in the upper right corner of the main section

  4. Figure 2: The Action sub-menu button activated ("..." button)

  5. Select the "Delete" option from the action sub-menu
    1. If its a board that only you own, you will be presented with this confirmation screen:

    2. Please note: f its a board that has been shared (globally or with individual users), you will see the same "Delete board" notification. Upon deleting the board, it will be un-shared from the users who you shared it with. Any copies they made of the shared board will remain.
