Delete a workspace

Deleting a Slack workspace cannot be undone: once you delete a workspace, all of its messages and files will be irretrievable, so please use caution and consider exporting your data first.

Workspaces on the Free, Standard, and Plus plans can only be deleted by the Primary Workspace Owner. By default, all workspaces connected to an Enterprise Grid organization can only be deleted by the Primary Org Owner — unless primary ownership is transferred to someone else in the organization.

Tip: Just need to change your workspace's name or URL? No need to delete your workspace — you can change these in your Workspace Settings under Workspace Name & URL.
