Hello. We have been running a few projects with Shotgun and are at a point where our project list has too much clutter in the form of projects that are no longer active. I know about archiving projects, and read the documentation regarding that but I was curious what happens to media of an archived project? Can I still access media uploaded as versions after archiving a project by either finding it somewhere or in worst case restoring that project?
As far as I’m aware archived project media doesn’t go anywhere unless you remove it.
However I also know that archived projects are trickier to locate as they’re not in the default filters or global pages anymore. for that reason we added a tab to our projects page to show only archived projects and that has been exactly what our users need to keep the main project page limited to active work but still provide a quick path to find old projects.
I actually tested it with a project after I posted and it looks like media remains as you said.
