Turn Archiving On/Off for a Group

Turn Archiving On/Off for a Group

As a group owner, you can keep posts in the online forum so members can view them any time. Group members might also get posts in the form of emails, depending on their group email settings.

If archiving is on, members who choose to get email updates can read and respond to posts using the online forum, email, or both. If they opt out of email updates, they can access posts online.

If you turn off message archiving for a group, old posts stay archived in the online forum. New posts aren’t added. Group members who get email updates can read and reply to them through email. Those who opt out of email updates can’t see new posts.
