Microsoft’s Making it Easier to Keep Teams Organized with new Archive Option
With Teams, Microsoft is hoping to make the platform your central hub for productivity. Seeing as it can natively integrate with the entire Office suite, many third-party services, and also features a robust messaging platform, the company is heading down the right path with the application.
But, like any good product, it can become overwhelming if you don’t maintain the content. Announced this week is the ability to archive a ‘team’ which will help you clean up inactive conversations to avoid being overwhelmed with a massive list of teams inside your organization.
To Archive a team, follow these steps:
- Select Teams Teams button on the left to see the list of your teams.
- At the bottom of the list, select Manage Settings button.
- In the Active list, find the name of the team you want to archive, then select More options More options button > Archive team.
- To prevent people from editing the content in the SharePoint site and Wiki tab associated with the team, select Make the SharePoint site read-only for team members. (Teams owners will still be able to edit this content.)
Only a team owner has the ability to archive and restore a team.
Once you archive a Team, the content becomes read-only but you will still be able to search through the information if you need to review it at a later time. Further, you can restore a Team as well if the project becomes active again in the future.
This is a small step for the Teams platform but one that will make it easier to keep your communication channels organized.
