Delete a group

You can delete a group that you manage. If there are any groups above the group you manage, their administrators can also do this for your group. The same is true for Workfront administrators (for any group).

For information about deleting a subgroup, see Manage a group.

Access requirements

You must have the following to perform the steps in this article:

You must be a group administrator of the group or a Workfront administrator. For more information, see Group administrators and Grant a user full administrative access.

*If you need to find out what plan or license type you have, contact your Workfront administrator.
