The Extract feature is useful when your company wants to archive a project's information after closing out a project.

A user with 'Admin' level permission to the Project level Admin tool can submit a request to have the Extracts feature enabled on a user account. When this feature is enabled, an Extracts link is visible in the Project Settings menu in the right pane of the project's Admin tool.
