Hey Ryan, 


Thanks for reaching out about this. The solution you may be looking for is the Archive feature. When you archive a room, users are no longer allowed to join it to chat and send new messages. The history of the room, however, is preserved. It is selectable from the history search screen, it can be viewed in the rooms list in the admin UI, etc.

The data contained within the room is still available in the same manner as an unarchived room. So you can always go back and reference it if need be.

Let me know if this helps answer the question.

Thanks but I'm not seeing that. After archiving a room, if I go to the URL for that room, it just redirects me to other rooms that aren't archived.
