How to move items from a bespoke "Archive" vault to the official Archive/Trash

I was one of those people who had created a special vault that I called "Archive" for old logins that I didn't want to fully delete but also didn't want polluting my searches. When I saw that 1Password had created their own Archive/Trash, I was excited that the team had come up with an official way to do what I had hacked together. I wanted to move the things in my archive vault to the official Archive, but I haven't found a good way to do it.

  • If I select all the items in my special archive vault and Archive them, they move to the Archive in that vault, which means I can't delete my bespoke archive vault.
  • Once in the Archive in my bespoke vault, I can't move them to my main vault.
  • If I select all the items in my bespoke vault, I can move them to my main vault, but then they are mixed in with all my regular items so it will be hard to find them and Archive them.
  • I thought about trying to tag the items in my bespoke vault, then moving them to my main vault, then running a search for that tag and moving all of those items to the Archive... however, there's apparently no way to bulk tag items.

Any suggestions on the best way that I can move items from my bespoke "archive" vault, to the Archive in my main vault?

    Hello @rbudish! 👋

    The easiest way to move your items from your "archive vault" to the new Archive in your main vault is to archive all of the items in the archive vault and then uses the 1Password for Mac app to drag and drop the items from the archive of the "archive vault" to the main vault. You'll find that the items will be automatically placed in the archive of the main vault.

    Let me know if that helps.

  • Sorry that it took me a while to respond. But yes, @Dave_1P this was exactly the advice that I needed! Thanks!
