The Divvy Details
When the need arises to delete a team member from your account, it’s important that any calendars or content they own is reassigned to another user.
To delete a team member, either go to your Team Members management area (located in the top-right drop-down menu under your name and select Account Admin). When you hover over the team member’s row, you'll see a Delete Member link displayed on the far right. The system will ask you to confirm your user deletion.
You’ll then be presented with a conflict resolution form, which ensures that deleting a user doesn’t delete any calendars or content they may have created in your Divvy account. The system will search for any calendars or content items that this user owns and display drop-down selectors for each calendar.
If the team member created any calendars, they will be displayed in the “New Owner” column in the middle of this overlay. Select a new calendar owner from the drop-down menu.
If the team member owns any content items on these associated calendars, drop-down menus will be displayed for each calendar. Select a new content owner for those content items.
Behind the scenes, deleting a team member is actually more of a "deactivation", considering that individual users have lots of other things connected to them. For example, if a team member leaves a comment on a content item, it wouldn't be right to remove that comment when a user is being deleted. That comment might be important as part of the history of that content project. So for these reasons, we deactivate the user so that much of their past activities will remain intact.
