How are we to handle "past iterations"? The iteration is over, but still appears as selectable for Planned-For. What is the best practice to handle this? For example...


Should you "archive" 2013 and 2013_* in Manage Project Area? No one should be submitting anything to the past... Will we be missing out on some data? Is "archived" almost the same as delete?

Internally we don't archive the older iterations. Instead, we just mark the current ones as current. In your 'planned for' drop down, only the iterations marked as 'current' should display, unless you hit 'more'.
We use the term archive within RTC as a soft delete.
