h2. Projects list

7 20 Robert Schneider
The projects list shows all active projects by default. To view all projects (active and archived projects) change the status filter to _All_. Note that there is also the project list for regular users that can be accessed by clicking on @Projects@ in the top menu. Non-administrator can create new projects in this list (and close projects within a project), but cannot do more administrative operations as it is possible in project list within the administration area that gets discussed here. Depending on the [[RedmineRoles|user permissions]] the here presented project list may be the only place to manage projects at all.

This sets a project to a read-only state. A closed project is still be accessible like a regular project but nothing can be changed anymore, thus it is read-only.
