Cannot Delete Goals Dataset??

I got sucked in the hype about the new Goals feature and created a test goal. 


Now I cannot delete it -- even though the goal is no longer showing up in the Goals section, the dataset and the goal report are still lingering around in the workspace. 


Moreover, I cannot unpublish them from the App -- every time I change the 'include in app' toggle, it comes back as on. I have hidden it from the app navigation, so it does not affect anything, but it's annoying. 


I can unpublish the app and re-create it, but I don't want to set up all the permissions again.

But I think I figured it out. Click back on Goals again to get to the top goals dashboard. then click on the three dots to get to the delete

Hi @MightyMicrobe ,


I can't reproduce your question for the time being, can you provide more information about Goals Dataset and operation screenshots? I will answer for you as soon as possible.

Looking forward to your reply.


Best Regards,



Thanks for your reply. I am not sure what screenshots I can provide? The "test goals" dataset is sitting in the workspace with the "include in the app" toggle permanently on. When I try to switch it off and re-publish the app, the toggle comes back on. The goals dataset is impossible to delete.
