Bulk archive

Bulk archiving allows a university the choice to delay the archiving of a previous teaching period, previously only an option as part of rollover. 

Process

  1. Select the All Lists report from the Reports menu. If you cannot see the Reports menu you may need the View Reports permission adding to a role you hold.
  2. Select the filters applicable to the lists you wish to archive, an example is 2013/14 time period.
  3. Select Published and Published with unpublished changes as the list status. Note: Draft lists will not archive as it is the published version of a list that is archived.
  4. Apply filters.
  5. Select the lists by the checkboxes, and select if you want to apply that to all the filtered lists.
  6. Select Action - 'Archive'.
  7. The request to archive can be monitored on Review Jobs screen, or just wait for the email notification.
  8. Lists already archived or deleted will show as items failed.

The video below shows how to filter the report by a time period and list status, and from that filtered selection make a bulk change to the list status to archive for the selected lists.
