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, DFP 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.
