Archive, delete, or restore a dashboard

Archive a dashboard

You must have permission to manage the dashboard to archive it.

If a dashboard is no longer used, archiving is a great way to keep it around just in case you need it later. The archive is also useful as a holding space for dashboards that are potentially not in use but require further confirmation from teammates before deletion. A dashboard stays in the archive indefinitely, unless someone with permission to manage the dashboard restores it or moves it to the trash.

Archived dashboards don’t run any queries for their charts or dashboard subscriptions, so if you need to refresh the data, you’ll need to restore it first.

Note that people with permission to view or edit an archived dashboard will see the dashboard’s title in the archive, but they won’t be able to open, restore, or delete it.

Archive from the landing page

To archive an individual dashboard:

  1. Go to the landing page by selecting the logo or Dashboards from the global navigation.

  2. Select All items from the sidebar to view an unfiltered list of all dashboards you have access to.

  3. Find the dashboard you wish to archive.

  4. Select More actions () > Archive.

To archive multiple dashboards:

  1. Go to the landing page by selecting the logo or Dashboards from the global navigation.

  2. Select All items from the sidebar to view an unfiltered list of all dashboards you have access to.

  3. Select the checkbox next to each dashboard you wish to archive.

  4. Select Actions then Archive.

Archive using dashboard cleanup

Rather than manually selecting multiple dashboards to archive, you can use the dashboard cleanup to quickly bulk archive dashboards that haven’t been opened for a specified amount of time.

You must be an Analytics admin to use the dashboard cleanup.

To archive using dashboard cleanup:

  1. Go to the landing page by selecting the logo or Dashboards from the global navigation.

  2. Select Dashboard cleanup. This will bring up the “Archive unused dashboards” pop-up.

  3. Optionally update the Number of months to change the span of time to check for unused dashboards. Select Preview to update the list of dashboards.

  4. Review the selected dashboards and deselect any that don’t want to archive.

  5. Select Archive.

Archive from the dashboard’s settings

Delete a dashboard

You must have permission to manage the dashboard to delete it.

Deleting a dashboard moves it to the trash, where they’ll stay for 30 days before permanent deletion. Within that 30-day period, you can restore the dashboard or move it to the archive.

You cannot restore permanently deleted dashboards.

Note that people with permission to view or edit a deleted dashboard will see the dashboard’s title in the trash, but they won’t be able to open, archive, or restore it.
