I've 2 timelines in my project and want to mark latest iteration in the first timeline as completed. Is it possible? My goal is to remove all iterations associated with first timeline (already completed) from the "Planned for" field.

-thanks in advance

This happens if you mark the current timeline as current.
I think this will not remove the old iterations, since the data is still valid. You could try to archive the completed iteration, then it would be suppressed in some views. I would suggest to set up a test server to get a better understanding on the effects.

How do I mark the next plan iteration as the current iteration?

this really has nothing to do with 'plan' its really Iteration.

in the iteration list in the project configuration, select the next iteration that is current for that timeline. (you can only have one iteration marked as current for a timeline).

iterations are complete when the iteration time period ends. 
there are other products that require an explicit 'end' workflow, but RTC uses the configured time.

a PLAN uses the iteration, the team and the workitem(s) to help users visualize the work, done by people over time..

Hi Leons,

For more information about setting the current iteration, see step 4 in
