Archiving Projects

Once your team is done working on a project, you can archive it so it is hidden from your site. To archive a project, select “Archive...” from a project’s drop down menu.


You will then be able to see all archived projects under the Archived Projects section on the Projects page.

What happens to archived projects

Once you archive a project, the data still exists in Shotgun but gets hidden from parts of the application:

  • Project is no longer visible in the Projects menu and search results
  • Records related to that project are no longer visible on Global Pages or from field auto-completion results

    It would be nice if archiving also hid all it's associated tasks, assets, shots. invisible to everyone everywhere. When we archive a project that has tasks which do not have status set to final, they keep chasing artist across the interface. If it's archived, it should really be fully archived.

    Hey Milan, the new 'Archived' checkbox field does indeed hide any records related to that Project, making those shots, tasks, versions, etc. no longer visible on Global Pages and auto-completion results. I've update the documentation above to reflect this.
