How to Archive Checklists/View Archived Checklists

Archiving checklists lets you hide them from view without permanently deleting them and is a great way to file away unused or completed checklists.

Archived checklists also do not count towards your five checklist limit on our free plan, so you can archive a checklist to make room for a new one.
