Archive a Team

We do not yet have a self-service method to archive Teams. However, you can request a team be archived by contacting the Service Desk.

Delete a Team

A team owner can follow these steps to delete a team:

  1. Next to the team name, select the ellipsis (...) for more options
  2. Select the option "Delete the team"
  3. Your team will be permanently removed.

Please note:

  • Deleting a team removes the team mailbox and calendar from Exchange.
  • The corresponding SharePoint site and all its files will also be deleted.
  • Any OneNote notebook, Planner plan, PowerBI workspace, or Stream group affiliated with the team will also be deleted. 


For assistance, contact the Service Desk.
