Archiving ensures that data in Benchling is not erroneously deleted. When data is archived, it is hidden from working view. You can easily search and recover any archived data.
Archiving applies to projects, Notebook entries, and inventory items. Note that archiving is not available in our Workflow or Request Management products.
Archive any project, notebook entry, or inventory file by right-clicking the item. A menu that includes an option to Archive will appear.
Select Archive. Provide the reason why the item is archived (e.g. Made in Error, Expended, etc.). This information can be viewed by you and your teammates so your team can retain context on why the item was archived.
Once you confirm the archive, the file will now be hidden from working view.
