This is the designed behaviour. Once archived, the project and all its data are no longer visible.

It may be designed behavior, but that does not make it useful or the best way to handle it. A feature request that covers the improvements: #8681

We also would appreciate that feature. Please take a look into this forum discussion Making reports 'Overall Time Spent' including archived hours? for more arguments.

The proposal of Brian #2-above might not help in this context, because projects, that are set to 'closed' are still listed in our very long projects list.

We think, the best way is to set a marker for a project, that tells 'Keep this projects effort in calculation, although it is archived'.

Sorry, because of these new arguments, I re-opened that issue again. We're looking forward for a discussion.

You should close the project instead of archiving it if you want to use the values in the project. The feature to cloase a project was implemented in Redmine 2.1.0 that was released in September 2012.
