How to Archive, Trash, and Restore Projects

Archiving vs. Trashing Projects 


When you no longer need a project, you have the option to archive or trash it. 


Archiving a project will save the project in its final state. No changes can be made to archived projects until they are restored. Archived projects are stored indefinitely on your MeisterTask account. 


To learn more about archiving and restoring projects, please see Archive and Restore Archived Projects


Trashed projects are deleted permanently from your account. However, once you trash a project it can be recovered from Trashed Projects within the next 30 days. After these 30 days pass, it can no longer be recovered, even by Meister Support.

  2. In the left panel, find the project you would like to trash and open it. In the project header, click Trash this Project.Trash_and_Restore_Projects_5_2x.png
