Delete a Category

Kyrie Melnyck Updated by Kyrie Melnyck

Now and again there might come a point where you need to delete a category. Perhaps you've restructured your docs. Or maybe you've just created a category you don't need by mistake πŸ™ˆThe good news is if you find yourself needing to delete a category it's super easy! πŸ’ͺ

  1. Head to the Content dashboard (or click here)
  2. Click Edit on the category
  3. Hit the Trashcan icon πŸ—‘in the top right corner of the modal

Only empty categories can be deleted. If your category contains articles you will need to assign them to a new category first. You can do that with the bulk edit tool πŸ™ƒ
The Unassigned Articles category is the only one in your Knowledge Base that can't be deleted.
