In order to keep an overview of your projects, you can archive completed or otherwise inactive projects. The projects will be moved from the view of the active projects to the Archive folder and will not be available to edit until they are unarchived. Also, archiving projects allows you to free up square feet for new projects.

Archiving projects in the Web Editor is only possible if you do not have a Company Dashboard. 

Please note that only selective roles have the permission to archive existing projects from the Web Editor:

  • License without dashboard: Project Owner - User who created the project and is hosting it in his account.

  • License with dashboard: The assigned Project Manage (PM) of the project, any Group Managers (GM) of the related group, and all Enterprise Admins (EA) of the dashboard are allowed to archive (and download) HoloBuilder projects.
    IMPORTANT: Go to your Enterprise Dashboard to archive the project - learn more here .

IMPORTANT: Archived and downloaded projects can only be viewed online by users with a project owner role - meaning the actual creator of the project, the assigned Project Manager (PM), any Group Manager of the related group (GM), and the Enterprise Admins (EA) of the dashboard.

The following steps only apply, if you are assigned to one of the above roles in your HoloBuilder Account/the HoloBuilder project. 

Note: There are two possibilities to archive a project. If you have Enterprise Dashboard access, learn here how to archive a project via the Dashboard instead.
