Have you ever accidentally deleted a project? (You’re not the only one.) Thank goodness for the Recycle Bin!
But even though users with System Admin or Group Admin access can restore your project, you likely need to submit a request and wait your turn. In the meantime, you’ve lost precious time that could be used to update your project.
Did you know that there is a way to prevent a project from being deleted?
First, you need to be the project owner. Next, verify that Billing Records appears in your vertical Navigation menu. If the Billing Records option does not display in the vertical Navigation menu, click Show More.
If this option does not show at all, check with your Group or System Admin, as Billing Records may be hidden on your layout template.
Once you have located the Billing Records option, click to open the object.
Next, select Start Adding Billing Records.
- In the Description field, we entered Billing Record Added to Prevent Project Deletion.
Note: You may add something slightly different.
- In the Status field, select Billed. It is critical that you enter Billed in the Status field.
