This page describes how to delete departments.
Notes on Deleting Departments
You cannot undo the deletion of the department.
Deleting a parent department will delete its child departments.
If you delete a department, it will also be deleted from the "Membership" of the member user. The user will not be deleted.
The users who lost membership by the deletion of the department will be categorized as "Unassigned Users".
Permissions Associated with Departments
If you delete a department, the access permission granted using that department is also deleted.
Depending on how access permissions were configured, some view-restricted data could be publicly accessible.
Take an example of a situation that only the members of "HR Department" are granted to view the "employee directory app". In this case, deleting "HR Department" from Kintone Users & System Administration could make the app visible to the whole company.
