Archiving an objective will remove the objective from the owner’s 15Five and will allow no further updates on the activity. This process usually is used when an objective is no longer relevant or when the owner no longer wants to see the objective from any past, current, or future view. It is an option that lies between closing an objective and deleting an objective.
Summed up, if you want to remove the objective from view, but don't want to delete the objective, this is a good alternative.
Archived objectives will appear in their own category under the Objectives page. You can always reactivate these objectives from the 'Objectives' tab.
1. Click on the 'Objectives' tab in your top navigation bar.
2. Click on the objective you want to edit.
3. Click on the gear icon.
4. Then click 'Archive objective'.
