Test plan and sharepoint site group

Not applicable



One quick question, i can't seem to find an answer:

I've created a new test plan and it creates a new group(site?) in sharepoint at company.sharepoint.com\sites\testplan

I have deleted the plan but the group is still accessible in sharepoint at that link. How can i remove that group(site?)? It will remove itself?


Thank you,

Hi Catalin and welcome, When you deleted your plan the group should also have deleted. Please see this brief support article by MS https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/Delete-a-task-or-plan-39e10e78-13f0-446d-94cd-9e562648497a If you deleted the plan and then immediately went to the Group, it could take a few minutes for the group delete process to happen. If it has not deleted after 5 mins or so, go to the Group click on the ellipsis icon, select 'Edit Details, and at the bottom of the screen see if you have the Delete Group function. I would suggest that if the Group has not auto deleted that you submit a support ticket as I am sure MS would like to know. I hope this helps.

Hello Tanya,


Thank you for the quick answer. The group is now deleted.


Have a nice day!
