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 on Projects.
- On the Project you wish to delete, click the "Manage" 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 "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.
NOTE: If their are impact metrics on the project you will receive an error message that does not alert you to the cause of the message. The system will be updated in the future to either improve the message or allow you to delete a project with impact metrics on it.
