Hi there.

I have removed a user from all boards and teams, but her icon still appears as an admin on one of the boards. 
I have checked : she is not in the team anymore.

When I click on her icon, I get only 3 lines : 
- Add to the team (which clearly shows that she does not belong here...!)
- Modify permissions... (Administrator) (sorry, I translate in English) - This line is not clickable...
- Display this member's activity in this board

Many thanks for your help. I just don't want to see this ex-member anywhere anymore !

Hi Bernard,

Do you have Business Class subscription?

Can you add yourself as an Admin on the board first and then try to remove her?


Hi Carolyn,
Sorry, I have a free account. 
I just can't understand why I could have removed myself as an admin. 
I have created the board, ran it alone most of the time, and then I had that co-worker for some time, who has now left... 

Many thanks for your kind help.

Hi Bernard,

Yes, I understand your frustration. 

There are a few options for regaining admin control here:

And another user in another question brought up an interesting option of a workaround by copying the board so that you are admin of the new board. (

Hope one of these can help you out!


Sorry, Carolyn, I forgot to thank you. 
Very kind of you. 
I'm sure your links will help. But I haven't looked into it yet. Busy... 
Thanx again.
