Deleting an old board


In both the desktop and online version of Trello I do not get the option of closing the board, only to Leave Board.

How do I delete it then?

Hi @Elaine Mears and welcome to Community!

You have to be an admin of a board to close it. If you're an admin, you'll be able to close it online or from the desktop app as well.

Hope this helps,

I will try again. I signed in with both my accounts, but will log out of all of them and see what happens :-)

Looking at your screenshot, the user with the "A" avatar is an admin and should be able to close the board :)

What do you do if the admin of your board is no longer with the company? I have two boards with admins that are not me but I'm the CEO of the company.

Same question, not sure I'm understanding. I want to completely delete an old board, not just close it, so I have an extra board to still create.
