If you’ve used SI for a while, you probably ended up with a lot of historic cycles on your cycle management page. Historic cycles are automatically filed in “completed” but sometimes you may wish to differentiate between “important” and “less important” old cycles. However, you also don’t actually want to delete cycles, so here’s where our new “archive cycle” feature comes in!
To mark a cycle as archived, you can use the “Actions” button and select the “Archive Cycle” option:
The cycle will then move to a new “Archived” category that’s typically collapsed – You can open it, of course.
Once archived, you are still able to unarchive the cycle again. Basically archiving a cycle gives you the ability to remove the clutter on your cycle management page without deleting it.
It is important to note that this has no behavioral change to the cycle in other areas of the application – It only tidies up your cycle management list. Furthermore, any cycles that are archived are not listed anymore in the cycle picker on the company overview pages, which again removes the clutter.
We hope that this little addition comes in handy for you to keep your cycle management tidy.
