Pause or archive an order

Pausing an order suspends delivery but keeps the order's inventory reserved.

Archiving an order files away the order and releases its inventory. When you archive an order that contains delivering line items, delivery is paused before the inventory is released. You can reactivate the order by unarchiving it.

You can't pause archived orders. You can't archive orders that are pending approval.

To ensure that you can find your active orders easily, Ad Manager periodically checks for orders that haven't delivered any impressions for the last 365 days. Auto-archiving runs every Friday and archives orders that have finished more than one year ago (as indicated by order end date). Active and pending orders aren't affected. You can always view and reactivate archived orders if you still need them.

Pause or archive an order

  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager.
  2. Click Delivery and then Orders.
  3. Select the checkbox next to the order and:
    • Click Pause to suspend the delivery of an order. You cannot pause archived orders.
    • Click Archive to file away the order.

View archived orders

Archived orders aren't included when you search in Ad Manager, but you can still view them:

  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager.
  2. Click Delivery and then Orders.
  3. Click More and then Archived.
The error message, "Cannot perform that action on an order in that state" might appear when you try to archive an order linked to a proposal. To prevent this from happening, make sure the end date for the proposal isn't in the future and the proposal doesn't contain proposal line items.
