How do I archive and unarchive a cost code?


If you do not want unused cost codes to appear in projects, you can "archive" the unneeded cost codes. This can result in a cleaner Procore interface by removing cost codes that you do not need to work with. Archiving a cost code from the ERP Standard Cost Code list means the cost code can not be added to new or existing projects on which the cost code does not already exist. Archived cost codes can be “unarchived”, making the cost codes again available to be added to new or existing projects.

Archiving a cost code does not impact the cost code on any existing projects where it already exists. The feature is only available on ERP-synced Standard Cost Code lists. This feature applies to companies integrated with Sage 300, Sage 100, Vista, Quickbooks or Spectrum.
