Hello Planner team, I have noticed that when you try to delete a bucket (... -> Delete -> Delete) the button does not work and the bucket is not removed. This happens when the bucket is empty.

 

I was able to replicate this issue both on Firefox 57.0 and MS Edge 40.15063. The steps to replicate are creating a new bucket (without adding any tasks to it) and then trying to delete. The workaround I used for this problem was to create a new empty task on the bucket and them delete it.

 

I haven't found this issue reported before, but please let me know if this is the intended behaviour or is already being looked into.

 

Best regards.

@Deleted, yes, I have also found this behaviour in Edge.  Thank you for the tip and work-around.  I have searched a little on this and have not found any other solutions to date.

Let me add a #MeToo to this one. I found the same problem, and the same workaround.

Hello Andre! 

 

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. A work item has been created and completed for this issue - we will be releasing the fix to production as soon as it's approved. This will allow you to delete a bucket without tasks.

 

Let me know if this continued to be an issue for you.

 

Best,

Has this fix been deployed? I am still unable to delete a bucket. Thanks!

Hi Kory

 

You can delete a bucket (and tasks within it if you wish) by moving the mouse to the top right side of the bucket, clicking onto the ellipses (...) [ellipses is hidden until you hover in line with the bucket name] and selecting Delete.

Just make sure that you move any tasks you don't want to lose before you delete the bucket.

 

**Note: I have also deleted an empty bucket and it works fine.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Cheers

Damien
