I would like to use Trello to manage a process that requires multiple people to have access to the board, but I would like to restrict delete rights to just the Admins. Can this be done?
I don't think you have the granularity with Trello to remove the delete card permission from a normal user. Would it be acceptable to have admins and observers (where observers are members with read-only access to a board)? Have you thought of using JIRA? ;-)
Agree - deleting cards should be restricted to Admins.
Unfortunately observer status not acceptable since observers cannot upload attachments which all our team members need.
Had a team member accidentally delete a card ! :( forntunately it was a fairly new card so it was easy to reconstruct it. However we have some cards on the board with plenty of attachments over the years. This will be a headache if deleted accidentally by non-admins.
We hear about people accidentally permanently deleting cards, lists, and sometimes even boards. If you back up your Trello account, you can easily restore the data with Rewind in a few seconds using the Power-Up. You can think of it as an "undo" button for Trello and a way to give new employees access to important Trello boards without stressing about data loss.
@Dasha Shakov Wonderful, a monthly service I'd have to pay for to back up my Trello boards because you guys refuse to add Delete Permissions ... seriously, why isn't there "Delete permissions" since we already have "Commenting permissions" and "Add/remove permissions".
Please tell me Atlassian plans to add "Delete permissions" to boards. This should be a no-brainer feature.
Hey everyone! I'm seeing a lot of comments on this thread asking for advanced user permissions to prevent accidental deletions.
While Trello considers building out this feature, I want to recommend a Power-Up called Backups for Trello. It was developed for this very reason – helping teams work safer in Trello without stressing about data loss.

I'm not suggesting that user permissions aren't an important request. They are. But wanted to give people a workaround for the time being if data loss is a real concern.
If anyone has any questions – let me know.
Just introduced Trello to my new team, gave them all assignments and created a Label for each of them. Told them when they finished to delete their label from the card so I'd know they were done. First one to complete deleted her Checklist. :-( Not just messing up the card, but the card was a TEMPLATE! I had hoped to leave the template card visible so I could easily copy cards or edit, but thinking now I am going to have to Archive it so others don't go in and mess with it. Crazy that a program meant for collaboration doesn't have a no-delete setting!!!
Hello my company is exploring Trello as project management tool for a cross-functional team. I would like to echo the need for a solution that restricts the permission of the delete function to an Admin type of user. Are there any updates as to when and if this feature will be added?
Hi Team, this is a critical requirement for a Trello board solution we are devising to manage an important aspect of our business. We need to be able to restrict permission for the deletion of Cards etc to a limited number of Admin user.
Are there definite plans to enable this type of functionality ?
I can't beleive this isn't already in, and I'm absolutely stunned it hasn't been added in the years since it was first asked for. Absolutely crazy not to have this basic functionality.
