2022.08.11: Note about how Archive works

Situation 1

You archive all profiles associated with a number so that none are left active. That number sends you a text. What will happen?

Result 1

ALL archived profiles associated with that number will be un-archived.

Situation 2

You archive all but ONE of the profiles associated with a number so that one is left active. That number sends you a text. What will happen?

Result 2

Since the number has an active profile, nothing happens to the archived profiles. They all remain archived.


Archive in general: person or group

Archive from the Messages view

Archive from the People view

To see your archived People or Groups


Archive in general: person or group

The image to the left shows the Archive icon.

Sometimes, the archive option will appear in the Action Menu (3 dots) as shown in the image to the left.

In either case, archiving a person or group acts as a "soft delete". Your archived person or group is removed to the archived list and is no longer considered active. However, they are NOT erased from the PastorsLine system.
