Suggestion: Archive

Hello people,

I have a suggestion for all platforms of 1Password:

It's about the following:

I don't want to have too many vaults because I think this creates confusion.

I would like to have an archive. I imagine it like the recycle bin.

When you delete objects this object is moved to the recycle bin. You can restore the objects from the recycle bin or delete the recycle bin.

The archive should be something similar with the difference that it can not be emptied.

It would work like this: Imagine you have objects that you won't need for a long time or may never need again. Instead of deleting them you can archive them. Either by right-clicking or by clicking and dragging them into the archive.

In the archive all objects will be displayed alphabetically and you can still view the data. However, the data in the archive should neither be displayed in "All vaults" or suggested in the browser extension when you visit the respective website.

If you need the data again regularly you can "Restore" the data so to speak and the object will be moved to the original vault.

I hope you like my idea. I am interested in your opinion about it.

Thanks for reading.

  • Hi @Mattis!

    Actually I'm using a specific vault called "Archive". Here I move all the entries I don't use anymore into it. And I chose not to display entries from these vault in my Windows desktop app, iOS app and the classic extension. It works good so far.

    But let's see what others think about it. :)

  • Hi @DenalB!

    Thank you for your reply and your opinion. I appreciate it very much.

    Like you, I currently have it resolved the same way, but too many vaults confuse me. I would like to have less vaults and sort the items with tags.

    So I would love such a feature officially from 1Password.

    I can pass on your feedback to the team. That said, I have used an archive vault approach for years now. Then I set the vault not to be shown within my apps as DenalB described.

  • Hi @ag_tommy,

    that would be great if you could pass this on.

    I personally don't like the archive vault solution because it adds another vault and then makes it more confusing.

    Also, 1Password.com does not let you exclude vaults from "All vaults".

    Have a great day!

    Sure, I would be happy to do that. I understand. I went through a boatload of permutations till I found something that worked for me. This is just what I settled on. Hopefully, we can find an elegant way to address this for our users. Who knows, I might even change, yet again! :chuffed:
