Archive users

Archive a user to remove their access but keep their data.

If an employee leaves the company or you simply decide to reduce the number of seats in Perdoo, you can archive users.

When you archive a user, OKRs will not be removed but access to Perdoo will be blocked for the user. An archived user doesn't count towards user licenses.

That means, if you archive a user and they are the lead of an OKR, they will continue to be the lead of that OKR, even if they're no longer an active user.

Why can't I delete a user?

Deleting users would remove connections between your goals and the people that are leading or contributing to them. Archiving preserves those connections to keep your goal data accurate in the system. If you'd like to delete a user, please reach out via the in-app chat at the bottom-right or email
