6) Toggle project open or closed. When closed, members can't access survey or connections tab to input data. They can still access the Bio tab and the Map tabs. Closing the project is a matter of preference. It's not technically necessary, even when making changes to the survey or connection options.

Delete a Project

A project you no longer need can be:
  • Deleted completely
    • Deletion is not reversible - you should download your data to your desktop if you think you'll ever want it again.
  • Archived
    • An archived project stores a project's data, but the project interface cannot be resurrected. You can return at a later date to access your data. You will not be able to re-open and gather new data in an archived project.

To delete or archive a project:
1) Click the trash can icon at the front of the project you want to remove
2) Select whether you want to delete it (remove everything forever),
3) or archive it (keep the existing data)
4) Cancel to change your mind and leave the deletion dialog box.
5) Enter your account password.
