Feed activity in groups is reviewed on a weekly basis. If a group has no new feed posts or comments for 90 consecutive days, the group is archived automatically. Mentioning a group doesn’t count as feed activity and doesn’t delay group archiving. Group owners, group managers, and users with the “Modify All Data” permission can manually archive or edit automatic archiving settings for groups at any time.
Click Group Settings on the group detail page in the Salesforce Classic. In the Lightning Experience, click Edit Group from the buttons in the group header.
Configure archiving for the group in one of two ways:
Click Archive to archive the group right away.
Select Archive this group if there are no posts or comments for 90 days and click Save to set up automatic archiving.
After you archive a group:
The publisher on the group page is hidden and members can’t create new posts or share files in the group.
The group no longer appears in the Active Groups filter on the Groups tab.
Previous group posts and comments no longer appear in the Chatter feed, unless someone adds a new comment. Posts with new comments display in the All Company feed and the feed of each group member.
Use the My Archived Groups filter in the Groups list to find the archived groups that you own, manage, or belong to. You can also use global search to find archived groups or associated content. Note that archived groups don’t count toward your group membership limit.
Group members don’t receive email notifications when a Chatter group they own, manage, or belong to is archived or activated.
If your administrator disables archiving for groups, you can’t archive groups or edit automatic archiving settings. You can activate archived groups at any time, even if the feature is disabled.
