Archiving and Restoring Itineraries, Suppliers & More

The Archive and Restore feature lets you archive your itineraries, suppliers and products. You can also restore archived data at any point in time. 

You can omit an itinerary or a supplier from the main view and still recover it at a later time through the Archive feature. 

Archiving Itineraries

The option to archive an itinerary is available on the Itinerary list. To archive an itinerary:

  1. Access the Itineraries tab in the navigation bar.
  2. Select the Options menu (three dots) at the end of the row for the itinerary you wish to archive and select Archive from the dropdown list.

Note: Once the itinerary is archived, it is removed from the main view. Archived itineraries are not included in the Alerts count 

  1. Select the Show archived option to access the Archived itineraries view and explore the archived itineraries.

Note: The auto-archiving feature automatically archives inactive itineraries, i.e. the ones that are inaccessible as they have not been confirmed before passing of their end date. This helps you have an uncluttered itinerary view. You can still retrieve and restore them from the Archived itineraries view. 

Restore Itineraries

You can restore archived itineraries through the Archived itineraries view. To restore archived itineraries:

  1. Head to the Archived itineraries view by selecting Show archived.
  2. Click the Options menu (three dots) at the end of the row for the itinerary you wish to restore and select Restore from the dropdown list.

  1. If you wish to base your new itinerary off an archived itinerary, you can do so easily:
    • Restore the itinerary from the Archived itineraries view. 
    • Locate the itinerary in the Itinerary list.
    • Duplicate the itinerary to use in the future. 
    • Re-archive the original itinerary. 

Note: Even if you do not manually archive the original itinerary, it will be archived the following day owing to its past date. 

Archiving Suppliers
