What happens when a page or an entire space is no longer needed? Don’t delete it, archive it instead! By archiving, the organization retains the information for legal and historical purposes. Plus there’s less overall clutter.
The page in the screenshot is outdated and customers have all different support plans now. Let’s archive this page. The option is under the ellipses menu in Cloud Standard, Premium, Enterprise and Data Center.
Note: There are no native page archival capabilities in Cloud Free or Server but there are some creative workarounds discussed below.
When a page is archived, it’s removed from the page tree and an “Archived pages” option appears in the left sidebar. This page is flagged as “archived”.
Do you notice anything missing from the page? Look at the top right of the image above. The normal pencil “edit” icon is gone! Archived pages can’t be edited and labels can’t be added either. The comment icon is shown, but that feature is disabled too. This functionality is removed by design. To edit or un-archive a page, just click “Restore” option. Then make the needed changes and archive the page again, if desired. Direct links to archived pages will sill work.
There’s a helpful table explaining the limitations and capabilities in the documentation.
Tip: For Cloud Premium and Enterprise admins, check out the two additional archival features on the same documentation page. Look for the words “nested pages” and “bulk archive”.
