There are three ways to delete tasks within ClickUp:

Delete a task within Task View

  1. Open the task and click on the ellipses ... symbol. 
  2. Click Delete.

Delete a task (or multiple tasks) with the Multitask Toolbar

  1. Hover over a task to see a circle appear to the left of the task.
  2. Click the circle for the tasks you wish to delete.
  3. Select the trash can symbol on the right side of the Multitask Toolbar.

Right-click on a task from List, Board or Calendar Views to reveal the Task Action Menu

Note that deleting a task is permanent. If you'd like to archive your task so you may review it later, simply close the task. You can filter to view your closed tasks in List, Board or Calendar Views any time to examine the task.

Is there any way to view deleted tasks?

It's always worth being careful before deleting anything in ClickUp. However, deleted tasks are stored in your trash can for 30 days, which can be found in your Workspace Settings page. Members have access to items that they have deleted, but admins and owners have access to the trash can! Check out this doc to learn more!

Be sure to check out how to archive and unarchive Spaces, Folders, and Lists as well!
