Can I reuse the name of a project that has been archived?

You can re-use the name of an archived project if:

  • The project is not suspended, and
  • You are the project owner.

 

Here's how...

First, you will need to unarchive the project:

 

 

Unarchiving a project:

  1. Go to your dashboard.
  2. Click on Archived.
  3. Click the check box next to the project that you need to un-archive and then click the Reactivate button.


 

Next, give the project a different name:

 

 

Renaming a project:

  1. Go to the project page.  The URL for the project page looks like: glitch.com/~[project-name] 
    Be sure to replace [project-name] with the actual project name.
  2. Click on the current project name and then type in a new name.  
  3. After you do this, you can re-archive the app if you like.


Now, you should be able to apply the original name of the project to a different project that you own.
