When a project is over and done with, you want to classify it as such. Not sure how to close a project? You’ve come to the right page. The two ways to close a project in Teamleader will be described here. 


Via your project


The first way to close a project is closing it directly from the project page:

  • Regardless of any open task that is linked to the project, it’s the milestones that need to be closed before a project will be marked as ‘finished’. 
  • In your ‘Milestones and tasks’ bar on the project page, you’ll find the ‘Actions’ button on your right-hand side. You then click on ‘Close Milestone’.

  • When every milestone in a project is set to ‘Closed’, the project will be considered completed.


Via the project planning

The second way to close a project is closing it via the project planning. Note that you can only do this when you have admin access to all projects. Follow these steps:

  • Navigate to Projects > Planning
  • Look for your project in the list
  • Click on the grey line next to the corresponding project:


  • Next, click on Mark project as completed:
  • This will close all milestones and related tasks.
