Filevine projects cannot be deleted; however, they can be archived. Archived projects will not appear in your search results or on your reports unless specifically requested. So, if you accidentally created a duplicate project, simply archive it.
What if I want to run a report that includes Archived projects but not duplicate projects?
You can use hashtags in Filevine to better categorize your projects. If you label each duplicate project with “#duplicate”, you can then run a report on all projects that do not contain this hashtag.
To add a hashtag, go to the projects page and select “Add Hashtag” located in the upper right-hand corner of your screen.
When creating your report, add criteria on the third tab, “How do you want to limit the list?” (For the basics on creating your reports, please see Build a Report.)
First, go to the drop-down menu for “Include Archived Projects” and select “yes.” Then, you will then want to add a second criteria item. Go to “Project Hashtags,” using the drop-down menu to select “does not contain,” and enter in “duplicate”.
Your report should now include all archived projects that are not labeled as “#duplicate.”
