What is the difference between deactivated and archived groups?

Updated at August 2nd, 2021

Deactivated GROUPS:

  • Groups can be deactivated.
  • A deactivated group is hidden for all members and can no longer be used.
  • A group can only be deactivated by its admin.
  • A deactivated group remains deactivated until it is reactivated by its group admin. 
  • Chat and cloud content will still be available once the group has been reactivated.

Archived CHATS:

  • Chats can be archived.
  • An archived chat is only hidden from the person who archived it.
  • Each group member can archive a chat for themselves.
  • An archived chat appears again in the chat overview as soon as a message has been sent to the chat.
  • Chat and cloud content will still be available.
