Enable or Disable a User

Each user in a LeanKit account can be either enabled or disabled. Only enabled users count towards your total number of licenses; only enabled users can access your LeanKit account. Disabling a user can be useful if an employee leaves your organization, since users not marked enabled cannot login or otherwise interact with your LeanKit account.

Please note that once a user is disabled card assignments and notifications for that user are removed.


On the home screen of your LeanKit account, click the Account Settings account settings icon jan 2020.png icon in the top bar.

From the Account User List tab, click the three dots next to the user you want to disable and select Disable.

A verification window appears. Click Disable User, and the user will then be disabled from the system. 


Alternatively, you can disable a user from within the user details. Simply click the three dots next to the user you want to enable and select Enable.

  • Once a user is disabled, that user will no longer be able to sign in to this LeanKit account and will no longer take up a user license.
  • Disabling a user alone does not reduce your licenses or your future billing. Please contact us at to have your licenses reduced and future billing updated to match.
