Archiving a project

If you are no longer working on a project and want to remove it from your active list but keep it in your account, you can archive it. This action will move the project to your archive folder and will hide it from view across the account for all users. From there you can restore it or delete it at any time.

Tip: Archive projects are only available on our Transform & Enterprise Plans and they do count towards your account's project limit.

You can follow these steps to archive a project.

Go to the Project Settings

You can get to your project settings in two ways:

From the projects view

  • Click the 3 dots in the bottom right-hand corner of the project icon

  • Click 'Archive'. If your account doesn't have our archived projects feature, you will only see a 'Delete' button in the project settings.

  • Finally, confirm this action in the pop-up window.

From inside the project

  • Click the Settings tab.

  • Scroll down to the bottom of the page and choose to Archive your project.

  • Confirm the action in the pop-up window.

Tip: You can rename your projects by going to project settings (choosing settings from the project menu shown above) and updating the project name field.

Deleting a project

You can completely remove a project and all of its content, files, assignments, and details from our servers by choosing to delete it. To do this, follow the same steps as above and select 'Delete'.

BEWARE: This change will take effect immediately. Remember; deleting your project CAN NOT be undone.

Restoring an archived project

You can restore an archived project at any time. Restoring an archived project will give you access to all the content and allow you and your users to work on the content again.

  • Select 'Archived Projects' from the avatar dropdown menu. You will need the create projects permission enabled on your role in order to access the archive project folder.

  • Find the project you want to restore and select 'Restore this project'.

  • This project will then be able to access from the project's view.

Duplicating an existing project

Duplicating a project will create a copy of the project Items, item names, the Item content, including files and media and the structure of all the Items; it won’t copy over any of the assignments, comments or revision history.

Duplicating a project can be useful if you are creating multiple projects with similar structure but slightly different content such as; multi-language websites, responsive or mobile sites, targeted email campaigns, web applications or different versions of ebooks.

  • Go to your Projects view

  • Click on the 3 dots in the bottom right-hand corner of the project tile.

  • Choose to duplicate the project

  • A duplicate project will be created immediately. However, it may take a few minutes for all the content to appear within the duplicated project.
