When you have finished a project and want to remove it from your list of active projects, you can easily archive it in the company dashboard with a few easy steps.

Please note that only selective roles have permission to archive existing projects from a Company Dashboard:

  • Enterprise Admin

  • Group Manager (only projects related to him)

  • Project Manager (only projects related to him)

Note: Archived and downloaded projects can only be viewed online by users with a specific role on the dashboard for the project - meaning the assigned Project Manager (PM), any Group Manager of the related group (GM), and the Enterprise Admins (EA) of the dashboard depending on the remaining license.

The following steps only apply, if you are have one of the above roles in the HoloBuilder Dashboard where the project is located.
