What happens to their data when a member is removed from a Workplace? 

  • Any unshared, private items that the member had, will be off limits. In other words, no one else in your Workspace will have access to that private Space, Folder, List or task.
  • Even if user is added back to the Workspace, they will not regain access to those items
  • Any public items created by the member will remain and maintain accurate activity history
  • The member will still show as assigned to tasks and comments, but an "Inactive" label is added by their name. It's easy to remove them and reassign those tasks with the multitask toolbar!
  • If you remove a member from a paid plan, that seat will remain open and you will be able to reassign it to a new user. If no new user is assigned before your next billing cycle begins, your member seat count will be adjusted down. 
  • Keep in mind attachments that were unshared and private, will count towards your storage. 

How to reassign tasks from a deleted member to another member:

  1. While viewing "Everything", sort your tasks by assignee. Be sure to 'Show closed tasks' or filter for all statuses. Then, you'll see this inactive user's tasks appear under his or her name.
  2. Use the multitask toolbar to select all of these tasks and un-assign them.
