How to archive a Channel

Archiving versus deleting

An important thing to note is that Happeo does not delete/remove Channels completely. Instead, it stores them in an archive in case you want to bring them back (e.g. accidentally archiving a Channel).

Archiving a Channel

To archive a Channel, navigate to:

  1. The Channel you wish to archive
  2. Click on Settings
  3. Scroll all the way down to the Danger Zone
  4. Click on Archive Channel

Note: Primary news Channels cannot be archived. You must first set another Channel as the Primary news Channel before archiving the Channel you currently have as a Primary news Channel.

  1. Navigate to the Channel navigation
  2. Click on All and select Archived
  3. You will be presented with a list of archived Channels. Select the Channel you wish to unarchive
  4. Click on Unarchive
