Archive campaigns, insertion orders, and line items

When you no longer need to see a campaign, insertion order, or line item, you can archive it to hide it from the regular views. 

When you archive campaigns, insertion orders, and line items, they're automatically paused and filtered from view. If you later decide you'd like to use something you've archived, you can unarchive campaigns, or duplicate archived insertion orders or line items. (If you archive an insertion order or line item, you can't unarchive the original.) 

Considerations

  • Display & Video 360 will automatically archive line items that have stopped serving after 6 months of inactivity.
  • To view impressions, clicks, conversions, and other metrics for archived items , create a report following the instructions below.
