How to leave a board and delete from my workspace.


Hi all;

I am new to Trello, I have a free student account to try and I have many doubts, but the first and most important is the one I explain below:

I currently want to free up space. For this I want to leave and delete a board in which I am an administrator and there are people working (it is an active board), in that board there are more administrators, but if I close the board to be able to permanently delete it, I also close it to the rest of the people.

I tried to leave the board but then I was not able to delete it from my workspace.

I would appreciate all the help you could give me.

Thanks in advance;

All the best;

Ricardo Sandoval

You would need someone to move it to a different workspace if you want to free up space in your existing workspace. 

Yes I think do that, but I guess there will be a way to get it right, without creating a trash workspace.

You can change the board owner - making-a-user-an-admin-of-a-board 

You can then leave the board - leaving-a-board-in-trello 

these links provide access to the documentation which is a great resource.

I tried that, but after leave the board, I can't delete from my workspace.

Always still appearing in my workspace. Do you know if I did something wrong.
