If you need to delete a funnel for whatever reason, the process is pretty straightforward.
Step 1: Deleting Pages to Lower Your Page Count
If you want to reduce your page count on ClickFunnels or just want to delete some pages that aren’t serving any purpose at that moment, you can do it with the following steps.
1. Go to the page you want to delete.
2. Navigate to the funnel’s bottom right corner.

5. Click OK.
Step 2: Deleting Pages Under Other Pages in ClickFunnels

2. Find Other Funnel Steps in the Funnel navigation bar.
3. Expand the drop-down list and select the step you wish to delete.

It is important to note that any pages under the Other Funnel Steps that were made with a template will count toward your funnel page limit. As a result, a funnel step will need an assigned template before you can remove it from this section.
Why Would Someone Delete a Step, Page, or the Whole Funnel on ClickFunnels?
There are many reasons why someone might delete a funnel or funnel step in ClickFunnels. A lot of times, funnel deletion occurs by accident.
But it is also possible for users to delete a funnel that no longer serves any purpose. Either way, the key reasons why people delete funnels are:
1. It Was an Accident
Although ClickFunnels has a user-friendly interface, it’s possible to get confused and delete a funnel by mistake.
This is especially common because deleting a funnel is easy and only requires a few simple steps.
It’s therefore important to pay attention to the pop-up boxes that appear before you confirm any action on ClickFunnels.
2. They Didn’t Need It
Some people delete funnels after they achieve their goals with them. They may also delete specific funnel steps that are no longer necessary to the funnel.
3. To Free Up Space
Some people also delete funnels to free up space for new ones. If you reach your funnel limit on ClickFunnels, you cannot add new funnels until you remove a few.
How to Archive a Funnel on ClickFunnels?
You can’t add any more funnels if you’ve reached your funnel limit on ClickFunnels. This becomes a frustration for some people, but there is a way around it.
You can always archive or suspend funnels that you no longer need at that moment.
You can use the following steps to remove some funnels from your funnel list and create room for new ones.

6. Once you’re done, your funnel count will reduce by the number of funnels you’ve archived.
However, it’s important to note that your changes will not display on your dashboard immediately.
Therefore, you should give the system about half an hour to process the information and update it on the servers.
If the changes haven’t been updated after 30 minutes, try logging out of your ClickFunnels account and logging back in.

Step 1: Log in to ClickFunnels
Log in to your ClickFunnels account and locate the top navigation bar. Click on ClickFunnels, then Funnels on the drop-down menu that appears.
