I'm trying to remove a user account from my Google Admin Console.

However it won't let me unless I specify an account to transfer all the data to:

enter image description here

As you can see, the 'Delete user' button is ghosted. The only way the button becomes active is if I enter an email address in the 'Transfer' field to transfer all the data too.

Thing is, I don't want to transfer over any data from the account, I just want to delete it.

Is this not possible?

Uncheck the box next to Brand Accounts (and other checked transfer items...uncheck all the boxes to transfer nothing) and the delete button should become available.
