An administrator or organizer may delete an existing project from the system as long as there are no assignments or impact metrics on the project.
How to Delete a Project
- Log into your VolunteerMatters system with the proper security access roles and then click "Projects" (Briefcase Icon) from the main menu.
- On the Project you wish to delete, click the "Dashboard" button ().
- This will open the "Project Dashboard" page. The Project Dashboard provides a high level view of project analytics and data for administrators and organizers. An organizer must be assigned to a project to be able to manage it. On the "Project Dashboard" click the "Manage" drop-down button () and select "Project Setup".
- This will open the "Project Setup" page. In the main project detail window on the top right you will see the following elements:
- Project Name
- Project Description
- Publish Mode
- Publish Dates
- Edit/Copy/Delete Buttons
Click on the "Delete" Button ().
After completion you will be returned to the Projects list page with a confirmation message that the project was deleted.
Note: Once you remove an assignment you will lose that volunteer history for that project/contact. There is no ability to restore assignments. You would need to manually recreate the assignment to "restore" the contact's volunteer history.
