How to delete a board you did not create

Several members of our staff use Trello.  We have had some staff leave and no longer work for us, but we seem to have no way to delete their boards because we did not create them.  These staff no longer have access to their email accounts even if we reached and asked them.  I'm an admin of everything else but not these boards that were created before my time.  Any tips or tricks on how to delete these boards?  "Close Board" is not an option for me.  I can only "Leave Board."  Thanks!

Hi Whitney,


I think you are looking for the Admin privileges in our Business Class product:

@Whitney_Schoenfeld if you no longer want or need the boards then leaving the board is no different from closing it really.

Also, do they have email addresses in your domain? If so you can just recreate those emails, gain account access and go about it that way.
