Active communities tend to get cluttered very quickly with a lot of content. After a while, some of the content becomes obsolete, inactive or irrelevant. Such content is preferred to be archived in order to keep only the fresh and most relevant content in communities.
Some communities tackle this problem currently by creating boards specifically assigned as archives, and moving archival-ready threads into these. This however leads to following:

How it helps Community Managers
Community Managers can now find an option to archive topic/article in the options menu for each Forum topic/TKB/Blog article.
Clicking on it would allow them to archive contents into an out-of-active-view space of community known as "Archives". This can only be accessed by members with specific permissions (primarily recommended for CommunityManagers/Moderators/Admin). Using this, the community managers can ensure that only the most relevant and fresh content on respective communities are maintained. Also, at any point of time, there is an option to bring the archived contents back into active community easily if needed.
Content Archive GA is now available as part of the Khoros Communities Release 20.3. Learn more about the Content Archive.
