In a Google Sheets spreadsheet (Excel terminology = workbook) is it possible to delete multiple tabs (Excel terminology = worksheet) in one go without having to right click each one and delete it.

  • this deletes all sheets except Sheet1, Sheet2 and Sheet3

function DELETESHEETS() {
  var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
  var sheets = ss.getSheets();
  for (i = 0; i < sheets.length; i++) {
     switch(sheets[i].getSheetName()) {
     case "Sheet1":
     case "Sheet2":
     case "Sheet3":

Use Bulk Sheet Manager. It also allows you to hide sheets, which may be useful if sheets have some dependency.
