Important: Do This Before You Delete Slack Workspace

A few things to note before you delete your Slack workspace:

  • Only the primary Account Owner of the Slack workspace can request workspace deletion. If you’re not the workplace owner, you should contact the owner and ask them to delete the workspace.

  • Deleting a Slack workspace is permanent, and you won’t be able to reverse, nor recover any information or data once it’s been done.

  • We recommend you download your Slack data before deleting your workspace.

  • If you’d like to change your workspace name, org name and URL instead, you can do it without deleting your workspace by following these guidelines.

Here’s how to delete your Slack workspace:

  1. In the Slack dashboard, click on your workspace name
  2. Go to “Settings & administration”
  3. Then select “Workspace settings”
  4. Scroll down till you see the “Delete workspace” option
  5. Click on “Delete Workspace”
  6. You’ll be asked to confirm your decision and type your account name & password to proceed.
  7. Click “Yes, delete my workspace”

Done! You have now successfully deleted your Slack workspace along with all the information stored about your members, messages and files.
