You can change the status of a project if you have permissions to Manage the project.
For more information about project permissions, see "Understanding Project Permissions."
Consider the following when updating to specific statuses:
- When updating a project to Complete: Ensure that all tasks and issues are completed on the project. You cannot select the Complete status for a project, or any other status that equates Complete. This includes approving any task or issue that is in a Complete-Pending Approval status.
- When updating a project from Complete to Current: Ensure that the project's Completion Mode is set to Manual. For more information, see “Project Status Will Not Change from Complete to Current.”
To change the status of a project:
- Navigate to the project that contains the status you want to update.
- In the project header, click the drop-down arrow next to the current status, then select a new status.
Click Edit Project, then select a new status in the Status field, then click Save Changes.
