How can I delete personal spaces of employees who are no longer with us?

I've deactivated a lot of users but their personal space still shows up. Do I need to delete them first in order to get rid of their personal space or are they two different things? 

 

Thanks!

Hi Cate,

I am afraid that you will have to delete the spaces manually. Users who have created content cannot be deleted, they should be disabled, but the content they have generated will not be deleted.

All the best,

Peter

Hello Cate,
Peter is correct, and the first thing you should do in order to delete the space is to check the permissions for it, in case you have it, you can delete it.
Follow this doc for it: Deleting a space or Spaces.
I hope this helps!

In my case, I have first removed a user. Then, I tried to delete it as explained above. But I cannot delete it because of disappearance of the delete tab.fullsizeoutput_2.jpeg
