Deleting Custom Fields

Table 8. Availability






On Business accounts, the account owner and all account admins can delete custom fields. On Enterprise accounts only account owners can delete custom fields by default, but they can give account admins the permission to do that.

You can completely delete any custom field along with its values from the account, including the fields that aren't shared with you.


On this page, you'll learn how to delete custom fields from the account. If you're looking for a way to remove a field from a folder, project, or space without permanently deleting it, check out the Removing and Hiding Custom Fields page.
