Areas belonging to sites which are part of Applicability groups (multiple connected sites) cannot be deleted. To remove them from view to prevent users from selecting them, Site Administrators can hide them.

Hiding an area does not have an impact on policies already assigned to the Area, but rather the ability to assign new or existing policies to use the Area.

Areas may be known as Policy Area, Department, Category, etc. on your PolicyStat site. Some terminology may be customized for your site, but the concepts are universal.
