How do I complete a project? Without deleting it?

TG

This seems like it should be obvious...but I can't figure it out. How do I mark a project complete, without deleting it?

It feels like tearing out and throwing away completed sheets from my notebook! :P

Hello Tim,

unfortunately, it's not possible to complete a whole project right now. We will consider adding such feature in the future.

This is definitely needed. As a work around, I've created a project called "Archives" and when a project is completed, I just moved under this project. Hope that helps.

Wait, is this serious? You can't complete a project? Why the hell would I use an app to help me complete projects if I can't mark a project as complete?


Complete and utter fail.

Hi Ben,

A project is either active or inactive. Once completed, you can "archive" and this will remove it from your active projects but will still be accessible for search purposes.

The last reply for this thread is January 2012 but we now have the "archive" feature built in so you don't need to manually archive projects.

Regards,

Clyde

That'd be really useful feature. One doesn't get to "archive" completed tasks when they get done, so why do we have to "archive" completed projects instead of marking them as finished (just like the tasks)?

I completely agree. The idea of archiving a project doesn't make sense. If anything, changing this feature will save money on customer service, because users are just getting confused.
