Archive script
 
I'm wondering if anyone knows of a script that would do the following, or something close.

After selecting a project, run the script and the project and all its actions (regardless of status) are moved to another OF database. I'm not even sure you can maintain two databases, but I need a way to move completed or cancelled projects from the main db without losing their history.

The archiving feature doesn't work the way I need it to as it archives tasks, not entire projects. As a result, I get partially completed projects in the archive, on hold projects in the archive and projects without tasks in the archive. I would like more control over what gets moved and when.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. John

I'm not aware of a script that does it, but you can always open the archive database, drag the project in, and then delete the original in your 'real' database...

A word of warning: you have to drag the project from the main panel, [b]not[/b] the sidebar! Drag from the sidebar (at least in 1.7.5) and you'll just get the project header, and when you go to consult your archive at a later date, be left wondering where all the actions went...

I hope this is a bug (report filed), because it is rather surprising, very unfriendly, and not documented anywhere that I can see.

I ran into the same thing recently and was rather surprised as well. I'm glad you posted about it, Bill, as I had forgotten to send a bug report!
