Hi there, @iwachira.
Yes, a user can still post time and expenses on a project that is marked as completed. All you have to do is to click on the Track Time option under the Time Activity section. Any information that will be added will still be recorded under the said project.
If you want to use it on your future transactions, you'll just need to change its status to in progress. Please see the screenshot attached for reference:
To give you more details on how the project works in QBO and on how to add time, please check out these links:

I appreciate the prompt response, iwachira.

I appreciate your help on the matter, but my query is yet to be answered. Basically, we have a multi-user functionality. As the administrator, I know that when a project is complete I should not post additional costs or time...however, some of the other standard users that I have granted posting rights may not follow this. I am looking for a solution whereby once a project is marked as complete, the field is deactivated and no one can post additional expenses or time to the project.
Hello there, @iwachira.
I'm here to share additional details about the project feature in QuickBooks.
Since there's no option to deactivate the field once the project is complete, I'd suggest using the +New icon when creating a transaction. So the completed projects will not show up in the selection drop-down.
We take our customer ideas into consideration when looking for product improvements. I’ll be sure to share your thoughts with our engineers to see if this feature will be available on the next updates.
