Delete a workspace

If your team no longer needs a workspace, the Primary Workspace Owner can delete it. Once you've deleted a workspace, all of its messages and files will be irretrievable, so please use caution and consider exporting your data first.

Tip: Just need to change your workspace's name or URL? No need to delete your workspace — you can change these from the Settings page.

To delete your workspace, use the steps below:

  1. Sign in to the appropriate workspace and visit
  2. Scroll down to the Delete Workspace section and expand it.
  3. Click Delete Workspace.
  4. Enter your password and click Yes, delete my workspace.

Note: Keep in mind, if your workspace has single sign-on enabled, Slack does not store members' passwords. As a workaround for step 4, you can set yourself a password, then delete your workspace.

Who can use this feature?
  • Only the Primary Workspace Owner can delete a workspace.
  • Available on free and paid plans.
