Archiving and deleting spaces

You can archive and delete spaces you are a part of. The space is temporarily moved to Archived spaces when you archive it. You can still access the space and restore it by unarchiving it whenever you want to. 

To archive a space, click the More options button () > Archive.

To restore a space, click the Hamburger button () and click Archived spaces. Open the archived chat, and you will see an option to Unarchive or Delete the space.


You can delete a space only after it has been archived. When you delete a space, both the space and all associated data are lost and cannot be recovered.
