How do I delete a task and a subtask from the board?

I created a task with associated subtasks that I wish to remove from the project.   Specifically, can I remove it from the "Board" view?  How do I accomplish that?

When you delete the task, the subtasks associated with it are also deleted. You can delete the task by clicking on the task -> locate the three dots on the top right -> Delete.

You need to have permissions to 'Delete Issues' in the permission scheme.

Thank you....where do I locate the "permission scheme"?

Hi Lynn,

You can refer to the following documents which show you how and where to find the permission schemes;

Manage project permissions 

Permissions for company-based projects 

I'm using the free plan, am I still able to access the "permission scheme"?  When I follow the directions as per the links above, I am not seeing what I need to see.  Suggestions?

Hi Lynn, unfortunately, you won't be able to access the "permission scheme" on a free plan, however, do you still have the ability to delete the tasks as you originally intended?
