Delete a Card

LeanKit's step-by-step guide on how to permanently delete a card. 

Perhaps you created a card in error and need to remove it completely from your LeanKit account. There are two ways to permanently delete a card from your board: via the context menu or from within the card details. 

 

To delete a card using the card context menu:

Right-click on the card and select Delete from the menu that appears.

Click Yes to permanently delete this card from your board. This will remove this card and all history associated with it. You cannot recover a card after deleting it.

 

To delete a card using the card via the card details:

Click on the face of the card that you would like to delete to open the card details and click the three-dot button to reveal more menu options. Select Delete from the dropdown.

Allow or disallow users to delete cards: 

There is a board level setting to turn the option to delete cards “on” or “off.” This helps prevent the loss of work history and ensures accurate activity reporting on all the cards being pulled through your process. 

Note: By default, "Allow users to delete cards" is set to "no." But you can change this at any time in the Board Settings, as shown below.
