h1. Managing projects 


 h2. Projects list 

 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 !/images/true.png! 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.

 h2. Adding or editing a project 

 See [[RedmineProjectSettings|Project settings]]. 


 h2. 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    It is available on a per Project basis in the [[RedmineProjectOverview|Overview]] screen of the project itself. It is not part of the project list shown above.  

 See screen. (See Feature #3640 for details. 


 h2. Archiving a project 

 From the projects list, click the !/images/locked.png! *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. 

 h2. Copying an existing project 

 From the projects list, click the !/images/copy.png! *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: 

 p=. !project_copy.png! 

 h2. Deleting a project 

 From the projects list, click the !/images/delete.png! *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.
