What happens when an account is deleted?
When you delete an account, Notion will:
delete the account associated with that email address.
delete any private workspace(s) in which you are the only member.
delete any shared workspace(s) in which you are the only admin.
remove you from any shared workspace(s) in which you are a member or one of multiple admins.
All of these workspaces will be listed in a warning when you click
Delete my account.
How do I delete an account?
Settings & Members. In the window the pops up, click
My Accountat the top of the sidebar.
Scroll down until you see the title
Danger zone. Click

A window will pop up to confirm this is what you want to do before we remove your data. This also shows any workspaces that will be deleted.
To proceed, manually enter your account email. Then, click
Permanently delete account and # workspaces.

- How can I migrate all my Notion content to a different workspace?
To move your content from one workspace to another associated with the same account, click
•••next to each of the top-level pages in your sidebar (or right click) and select
Move To. You'll see the option to move them to another workspace. When you move top-level pages, all their sub-pages go with them. They'll appear in the
Privatesection but can be moved wherever you want to put them.
If you'd like to move content from one account to another, follow these steps:
Log into the account that has the content you want to transfer.
Consolidate all your pages under one top-level page in your sidebar.
Share that page by clicking
Shareat the top right, hitting
Invite a Person, and typing the email associated with your other account. Make sure
Full Accessis selected from the dropdown.
Now, log into the account you just invited to share this content.
Click on the name of your workspace at the top of your left-hand sidebar to open the workspace switcher. Go to the top-level page that you just shared.
Inside that page, select all the sub-pages, click
Move To. Select the destination workspace, and your content will be there! ✨
