- Managing projects
The projects list shows all active projects by default. To view all projects (active and archived projects), change the status filter to 'All'.
- Project: The project name
- Description: A short description of the project
- Public: If the icon is present, everybody can see this project. Non-public projects can be viewed only by a user who was given access by an administrator of the project.
- Created: Indicated the date when this project has been created.
Adding or editing a project¶
See Project settings.
Closing a project¶
This sets a project to a read-only state. A closed project is still be accessible like a regular project but nothing can be changed anymore, thus it is read-only.
The link to close a project is available on a per Project basis in the Overview screen of the project itself. It is not part of the project list shown above.
See Feature #3640 for details.
Archiving a project¶
From the projects list, click the Archive link to archive a project.
An archived project is no longer visible by users. It can be un-archived (with its original content) by the administrator. When archiving a project, any subproject is also archived.
Copying an existing project¶
From the projects list, click the Copy link on the right of the project you want to copy.
You will get the new project form prefilled with the settings of the copied project (trackers, custom fields...). At the bottom of the form, you can choose what should be also copied to your new project:
Deleting a project¶
From the projects list, click the Delete link. You will be asked for confirmation on a separate screen.
This is pure deletion of the project and all its subprojects. Contrary to Archive, you can't restore a deleted project. Use it with a clear-mind.
