  • Change rights to the project.

If a project is no longer active and it needs to be hidden from view, you have to remove the users/groups from the project. 

  1. Open the project.
  2. Click on Project at bottom left. 
  3. Click on Users.
  4. Select the user or group whose access you want to remove. 
  5. Use the Remove User/Group button or right-click to select the option in the context menu.

Note: All users with the Administrator role will continue to see ALL projects. There is no way to hide projects from users assigned this role assignment.
