How To Delete Queues In Hubspot

Are you in need of a brief tutorial on how to remove queues in HubSpot? You have arrived at the correct destination. This blog article will provide you with a step-by-step walkthrough of the process.

What is a Queue in HubSpot?

Before we delve into the deletion process, let’s understand what a queue is in the HubSpot context. A ‘Queue’ in HubSpot is a powerful tool that allows users to organize their tasks or objects like contacts, companies, or deals in a systematic manner. However, there may be instances where you need to delete a queue, and this guide will show you how.

Steps to Delete Queues in HubSpot

  1. Log in to your HubSpot account.
  2. From your dashboard, navigate to Sales > Tasks & Queues.
  3. Locate the queue you want to delete. Click on the queue name to open it.
  4. At the top right corner of the queue, click on the Actions dropdown menu.
  5. From the Actions dropdown menu, select Delete.

Please note that once a queue has been deleted, it cannot be restored. Therefore, ensure you no longer need the queue before initiating the deletion process.

Deleting Queues via HubSpot API

If you are a developer and prefer to use APIs, HubSpot provides an API for deleting queues. Below is a simple example of the API call in Python:

import requests

url = "{queueId}"
querystring = {"hapikey":"your-hubspot-api-key"}
response = requests.request("DELETE", url, params=querystring)


Please replace {queueId} with the ID of the specific queue you want to delete and your-hubspot-api-key with your actual HubSpot API key.

Remember, using the API to delete a queue will permanently remove the queue from HubSpot, similar to the manual method. Be sure that you no longer need the queue before deleting it.


Deleting a queue in HubSpot is a simple process, whether you prefer to do it manually from your HubSpot dashboard or using an API call. As always, be careful when removing any data to prevent accidental loss of information. We hope this guide has been helpful. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comment section below.
