Deactivate a team

Any work assigned to the team prior to deactivation remains assigned. We recommend reassigning work before you deactivate the team.

You can create a report to filter for any tasks or issues where the deactivated team is still assigned.

When using request queues, if you deactivate a team assigned as the default team in a routing rule, the team remains and requests are still routed to the deactivated team. We recommend updating routing rules with active teams before you deactivate the team.
