Restoring Projects / Branching Projects (in the past)
In MatrixALM you can create clones of existing projects. You can even create a clone of a project as it was in the past. A clone of a project contains all the history of the items. It does not contain external links.
Overview of the process
To create a clone of a project, here is what you need to do
- Step 1: (Optional) in the original version tag a version in the history
- Step 2: Export the original project
- Step 3: In the administration client restore the export under a new name
Step 1: Tagging an old status of a project (optional)
1) select the Change view
2) select the day where you want to put a tag
3) click on "View Selection Details"
4) click on tag version and provide a tag name and comment
Note: the tagged change will be the last change included it you restore to this tag.
Step 2: Export the project
In the report section of the project find and execute the "Project Export with Audit and Files".
Note: in case you cannot find it the report (try filtering the tree with "REPORT:Export") you need to create the report: Just select a REPORT folder and click on "Create Report Template".
