Dealing with Leavers & Movers (Archiving Users)

For background please read How to - User Management.

Why Archive & Not Delete? 

Have a user that no longer needs access to Gatekeeper because they have left or moved within the organisation? Instead of deleting a user, you can Archive their account. Archiving a user's account will prevent the account from being used, but it will preserve that user's history of activity.

Who can Archive a User?

Administrators who have additional User Administration permissions.
