How To Delete Trello Board

Trello is a popular productivity tool used to manage projects and tasks. However, there may come a time when you no longer need a particular Trello board, and you wish to delete it. This article provides a step-by-step guide on how to delete a Trello board.

Step 1 : Open Trello Board

First, log into your Trello account and navigate to the board you wish to delete. If you have pinned the board to your dashboard, you can easily access it from there. Otherwise, click on the ‘Boards’ menu at the top of the page to see a list of all your boards, and select the appropriate one.

Step 2 : Open More Options

On your selected Trello board, you will see a menu on the right-hand side. Click on the ‘Show Menu’ button, and then click on ‘More’.

Step 3 : Close the Board

Before deleting a Trello board, it is necessary to close it first. Under the ‘More’ options, click on ‘Close Board’. A prompt will appear to confirm your decision; click ‘Close’.

Step 4 : Permanently Delete the Board

Once the board is closed, the ‘Close Board’ option will change to ‘Delete Board’. Click on this to permanently delete the board. Again, a prompt will appear to confirm your decision. Click ‘Delete’ to complete the process.


Please remember that deleting a Trello board is a permanent action and cannot be undone. Make sure you no longer need the board and have saved any important information elsewhere before proceeding with deletion.


That’s it! You have successfully deleted a Trello board. The process is straightforward, but it’s important to be sure before you delete a board as it cannot be recovered. Happy organizing!
