Hi there, @PrairiePrincess 👋 Thanks for chiming in with this question. It is a good one!

 

If you delete an item, it will permanently delete it from your Item Library. We currently don't offer the ability to 'archive' an item, but deleted items will still reflect within your reports for record keeping purposes

 

I hope this information is helpful! Let me know if you have any follow up questions. I am here to help!

Hey @rootstudio!

 

Thanks for posting in the Seller Community. 

 

This is a great suggestion. We'll make sure to pass this insight along to the appropriate team.

 

As @Joe mentioned, even if you delete the item, you'll still be able to view it in previous sales reports where the item was sold. You will always have those records.

Wow. I can not even believe that this isn't already feature. How incredibly frustrating for us to have to add, delete, and re-add items. Please fix this!

YES!! Archiving items that also removes them from the main list would be AMAZING.

I would also like the option to archive items to be available in the very near future. In fact, I'm really surprised it has not been introduced as it seems like it would be beneficial to the majority of Square users.

I'm right with you @MarianBLUE! I tagged your post as another tally mark on the back-end. Hopefully we can announce some promising news soon 🙂
