Deleting Categories

Prerequisites: Users require site administrator permissions to complete this task.

Deleting a category removes the category and its children from the available categories list and removes its associations with site content. You can delete available categories on the Category Management or Deleted Category Management view. In Deleted Category Management view of the category tree, deleted categories display as dimmed.
Restore or permanently remove deleted categories in the Deleted Category Management view of the category tree.
Deleted categories maintain CanApply and CanView permission settings.
