Close and delete a project

Learn how to close and delete a project in the Project Client.

Closing a project saves any saved items in the project spreadsheet and your project settings. The project can be opened again to work with later.  See Open a project for more information.

Deleting a project deletes all settings and items in the project spreadsheet and removes the project name from menus that enable you to access projects.

 Note: Deleting a shared project removes access to the project for all users, not just from your Project Client workstation.

Close a Project

From the Project menu, select Close.
