Delete a topic

This feature is only available to organization administrators.

We generally recommend against deleting topics, but there are a few situations in which it can be useful:

  • Clearing out test messages after setting up an organization.

  • Clearing out messages from an overly enthusiastic bot.

  • Managing abuse.

In most other cases, renaming a topic is often a better idea, or just leaving the topic as is. Deleting a topic can confuse users who come to the topic later via an email notification.

Delete a topic

  1. Hover over the topic in the left sidebar.

  2. Click the down chevron ().

  3. Click Delete all messages in <topic>.
