2. Removing KanBo in the Site Collection in SharePoint

We recommend KanBo to be installed in the individual site collection, not the Root Site Collection with other applications.

In such a scenario, you can delete the entire Site Collection and there would be no need to perform additional steps.

In a second possible situation, KanBo is installed on the Root Site Collection or any other Site collection with other applications and it is impossible to simply remove the Site Collection.

We are introducing the uninstallation steps for these two situations.

Scenario 1: KanBo is added to an individual Site Collection which can be deleted

Go to SharePoint admin center, then to Site Collection section.

Select the Site Collection on which only KanBo is installed and click on Delete.

Scenario 2: KanBo is installed on the Root Site Collection or other important Site Collection which can't be removed

As a first step, please remove the previous registration information.

In order to remove the registration information from the previous installation, enterĀ (please change the YOURTENANTNAME value to your own).

Delete the KanBo using the X button.
