The common method for archiving is the SA Posting and Archiving module. There are times where specific types of jobs do not need to flow through the regular invoicing process. The Job Archiving module, while similar to the SA Posting and Archiving module, only requires that the job be set to a status of “Open”, whereas the SA Posting and Archiving module requires that the costs entries be posted, the and the job be invoiced. This utility can be used to archive old jobs that are no longer relevant and are clogging up the system, causing the system to run slowly. This will allow users to archive a very large number of jobs and improve system’s speed.
Here is how to access this module:

Note that you can view status of a job by opening the job in Order Entry. The status will be shown on the bottom left. You can also view this via the Job Manager.

4. Once the archiving process is complete, a report of successfully archived jobs is produced, and, if applicable, a list of jobs that could not be archived.
