If there are items in your venue that you no longer carry, you can archive them.

Archived items don't appear in searches and cannot be added to orders.

Before archiving items, there are some things to consider:

  • If you have two items that are the exact same, we recommend merging them instead of archiving

  • If an item is used in a POS Item or batch, or is currently in a distributor cart, you’ll receive a prompt to remove it from them before you can archive it. See “Archiving Errors”.

You can archive items in both the WISK Web Portal and the mobile app.
