How do we change the name of Projects or delete them?

Hello, I have created multiple projects and I am wondering how I can change the names of some projects and delete others.

Thank you,
Shane

contact with your item author hope they will solved your issue

Or you can read your item documentation well

Hi @shanekeller,

Envato Elements does not have a way to delete or rename projects at this time. For now, you can simply ignore the others and create a new project with the correct name.

If this is a feature you’d like to see added, feel free to open a Help ticket at the following link and request it: https://help.elements.envato.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=360000012243

Cheers! :slight_smile:

That was not my question. Each item we download has a Project License associated with it. I am asking, how do we change the name of the Project License or delete the Project License.

Thank you for letting me know. I feel this is an important feature as it will help organize, clear the clutter and help make naming more relevant when it makes sense too.

Hi,

Are there any updates on this topic? :slightly_smiling_face:

…what a sad mess Envato Elements (unalienable unbelievable awesome content it is, I will glady pay even more - it’s too good to be truth) - so, we are paying regardless of what your legal situation on the matter is. We all know the internet is full of your content easily downloadable for free the wrong way and the few of us who decide to do the right thing (and pay) need to deal with this distrusting attitude (can’t rename nor edit project… ridiculous) … good thing i read it before i make even more mistakes - organization is key.

Anyways, back to business -. y’all have a beautiful day.

How has this not been fixed yet?

“Envato Elements does not have a way to delete or rename projects at this time.”

It’s been 3 years, what have you been doing Envato? We pay for this service, the least you can do is address bugs and missing functionality… We NEED (not nice to have, but NEED to have) the ability to remove or rename projects. You NEED to add this ability if you expect us to keep paying hundreds of dollars a year to use your service over someone else.

Get your act together! This is horribly unprofessional

Why do you need such a feature, just out of interest?

I also would like the ability to rename or delete Projects. As a new user, I accidentally created a copy of a valid project name. Now I feel it clutters my screen during subsequent downloads. I’d like to delete this accidental copy.

Because, sometimes mistakes are made.

I really hope that this feature is being added. I wish to be able to merge projects or delete a project or at least edit the name.

“Envato Elements does not have a way to delete or rename projects at this time.” (3 years ago)

Since this post / feature request without any changes in the management of licenses - but is marked as solved - I would like to emphasize politely how important this is for users who work tidily. I still could not find any options to organize my projects (and not collections!). Did I misss something?
I don’t find it helpful that we are advised to create new projects and download same licenses again if old names have gotten wrong. It is also not helpful to ask why we want an editing option for projects and titles at all. The more important question seems to me, why this possibility has not been given for a long time and is obviously not being worked on either?

“Why do you need such a feature, just out of interest?”

Because if you want to use envato elements as professional or a team and if you want to be well organized and not sloppy, you will quickly find an incredibly confusing list of dead or incorrect project titles. I don’t want to have this mess (e.g.because a collaborating team member named a project differently at the same time), I don’t want to download an item 2-10 times so that it is assigned to a correct project in the end and I don’t want to scroll page by page to get an overview of the items I actually use. I want to have the possibility to click a project and see, what I’m really using and licenced for it (this is different from storing items in collections to collect them for possible use). I would like to organize my data neatly across all platforms (e.g. 5 - 6 other stock databases) and assign them to uniformly named project titles. And I am again a paying user politely asking for this completely normal and widespread feature that already has been missed 3 years ago.

I look forward to a constructive response from the envato team …

Even if there’s no way to delete projects because of licensing (I would guess), there should still be a way to manage their visibility and what shows up when downloading. At least in this way you could hide all old projects and projects you’re not working on so there’s no clutter in the list. It’s definitely not optimal for organization.
