Deleting a board

In order to delete a board, you'll need to close the board first. Closing a board is similar to archiving a card—you can leave it in your "Closed Boards" list if you think you might want to use it again some day, or you can delete the board permanently once it's closed.

In Business Class teams, team Admins can close and delete any team boards. 

Deleting a board is permanent, and deleted boards cannot be recovered.

To delete a board that is still open, first open your Board Menu and choose 'More'.
