I really need this feature!!!!! I have over 3,000 products and my vendors don't tell me when items are discontinued so you can imagine the build up of products that need to be archived! Please! Or someone make an app for it!!!!

I agree with Laurie. We really need this as well as we have a large number of items that go in and out of stock. We really need to be able to archive and unarchive items in the system so we don't lose all the data. Importing and exporting is not a good solution as it's very complex.

Please, please, pretty please! This would be such a godsend.

I am an artist and there are limited runs for each item. Having a way to archive these items instead of deleting them and breaking the SEO would be absolutely terrific! Please count my vote, and if the Shopify Overlords hear our plebeian prayers and bring forth product archival to the begging masses, it will be a splendiferous day for all—king and labourer alike. Sorry for being dramatic but I have to emphasize how useful a feature like this would be. I'm sure a lot of people don't even know they want this feature yet. ;) 

Bless, & have a good day!

Thanks Peter! Please keep us updated!!! We are very prolific artists that have limited art prints coming in and out of stock seasonally. It’s a lot to wade through on the product management page in the off seasons. And as someone said, it hurts our seo if the items are deleted and we loose our data and a lot of time unloading and reloading products through the year. Why can’t we just ‘archive’ products the way we can archive emails on Gmail?

I don't have any updates at this time, however; if this is something we're able to add in the future, we'll update our Changelog with further information.
