When a subproject grows beyond its original scope, you may want to make it a standalone project or move it to a different project hierarchy.

By removing the association with a parent project, you can manage the subproject as a separate project.

  1. Click Project Admin from the Project Home menu.
  2. On the Project Settings page, click Edit Parent.
  3. Change the parent project as required. You can be a project administrator or a site administrator to change or remove a parent project. As a project administrator, you can remove or change a parent project only if you have administrator permissions for both the projects that are being linked.
    • On the Choose a Parent Project page, select the desired parent project and click Update.
    • Click Remove Parent in the Project Settings page to remove the association with parent project.
    • On the pop-up message box, click OK, if you wish to make the project a ‘Root’ project.

    The project hierarchy is changed or removed in accordance with role based access control and inheritance rules.
