You can delete a custom system status if it is no longer useful to your organization.
Whether the status is locked or unlocked determines if the status is deleted for all groups in the system:
You cannot delete the following:
A locked or unlocked system status used in a system approval process that is currently pending approval for at least one object in your system.
However, you can delete an unlocked system status used in a single-use or a group-level approval process that is currently pending approval.
You can run a report to find the objects and resolve the pending approvals, then try again to delete the status. For instructions, see List objects with a pending approval processes using a certain status.
Statuses used in approval processes that are currently pending approval for at least one object in your system.
For instructions on deleting a group status, see Delete a group status.
