I don’t really like the method of just setting the state to “Archived” because then it becomes something I constantly have to filter out.
I also don’t really like the Convert To option because (correct me if I’m wrong) it requires that I manually keep the field names in sync and it also breaks relationships.
Seems like this could be something that requires a script which a) moves the entity to another “Archive” space and b) re-establishes the relationships.
Any other ideas?
To provide a use-case for this, say I have an Orders space and a Products space. Orders have products. If I decide to stop carrying a product I want to archive it but still keep the record of orders accurate, to be able to calculate monthly sales, etc.
