How to Leave or Delete a Teamspace in Notion
Notion is an excellent app for enterprises to collaborate with employees on various tasks and projects. The app even offers a feature called teamspaces, where individual team members are provided their own space to organize their projects. But what if you are no longer a part of an organization and want to leave the associated teamspace as well? How do you leave or delete a teamspace in Notion?
What is a Teamspace in Notion?
Teamspaces is a popular feature in Notion, allowing teams to collaborate on projects and tasks easily. It also helps provide important company-wide information to all team members.
As a Notion admin, you can add members to a teamspace. You can assign different rights to each member, like the ability to edit or comment on projects, etc.
As an organization, if you rely on Zoom for video meetings, consider adding Zoom to Google Calendar to make scheduling meetings easier.
