How to Archive past projects?


What are the steps to archive a completed project to clean up my dashboard? Is there any option to view all archived projects with their tasks?

There isn't really an "archive" function, but most of us set up an "archive" permission scheme and apply it to the projects we want to archive.  That scheme is usually set to say "no rights except browse", and if you make the "browse" limited to just the admin group, or even leave it out at all, the project and its issues vanishes from all the users who can't see it. 

Thank you for the quick reply. Can you please guide me how to create the "archive" permission and how can I configure the scheme? Where can I find these options? I am not really familiar with the software and I don't know where to start. Thanks in advanced.

Thank you very much! It works!
