Your project is done. The client is happy and their check has cleared the bank. It’s time to trash that old project and get ready to tackle something new.
Flash forward six months. The client breathlessly calls up and says: “I just got the budget. I want to go back and reedit EVERYTHING!”
Great. The problem is that you trashed everything from your system about four months before she called. Now what do you do?
The process of storing project data so you can get access to it later is called archiving. And archiving a project is a lot easier if you take time to get it organized correctly in the first place.
- Organize your project BEFORE you start
- Organization during your project
- Know what to archive when the project is done
- Solve long-term storage problems
