As an Ally.io admin, we give you support to manage your teams. Sometimes, teams are dissolved or due to an organizational change, they are retired. If this is the case for you, we give you two options in Ally.io – you can either delete or archive a team.
In this article:
- Deleting a team
- Archiving a team
Deleting a team
This is a permanent option, and once the team has been deleted, it cannot be restored. Please delete with caution. A team can be deleted by navigating to the Admin > Teams tab > Actions against a specific team you want to delete > Delete.
Alternately, you can navigate to the team's OKR page, and delete the team from the options on the top-right corner.
Note: To delete a team from the team's OKR page, you need to be an org admin, or the team owner. Team admins cannot delete a team.
A team can only be deleted if there are not any objectives assigned to that team. If you have objectives assigned to the team, a better alternative is to archive the team.
Archiving a team
Archiving a team is what Ally.io recommends you to use for teams that are no longer in service. You can archive a team by navigating to the Admin > Teams tab > Actions against a specific team you want to archive > Archive.
Alternately, you can navigate to the team's OKR page, and archive the team from the options on the top-right corner.
Once a team has been archived, it will be marked as such under the teams tab within the Admin console, and will not be visible anywhere else such as My teams or All teams. Any objectives that were owned by this team will remain in the same state, however no new objectives may be assigned to this team.
Archiving a team is not a permanent option, and an archived team can be restored by navigating to the Admin > Teams tab > Actions against a specific team you want to restore > Unarchive.
