GroveSite is proud to announce the new features of the Archive Site utility for its online collaboration software. The Archive Site utility creates a static, non-editable, downloadable snapshot of your workspace so that you are able to save the information and individual files from your collaboration site. Each page within an archive is recorded in its most expanded form so you are able to view as much information as possible.
Previously, in order to archive a site you had to submit a request for an archive then leave the screen open until the archive was complete. Only then could you download the files for the archive. Well, that’s great—but what about the gigantic sites that don’t exactly archive in five minutes? We understand that time could have been lost staring at the screen waiting for an archive to process. That is why we decided to revamp it!
With the updates to the Archive Site utility, you are now able to request an archive and then leave the page! Actually, that is encouraged. The biggest changes to the feature include:
- Being able to leave the site and have the site archive
- Email notification when ready
- Log kept of all recent archives
1: The Archive Site utility will now run in the background. This means you can request a site archive, or two, or three before you leave for a meeting, step out for lunch, or even leave the office. Whether you remain on the archive screen, navigate away, or sign out of GroveSite completely, your archive will still be gathering.
2: You will receive an email notification when your archive is ready for download. You can now Login > Org Admin > Archive Site and see your archived site and a list of ZIP files ready to download. Click to Download each zip file to your PC, then extract each one, then click on the '.htm' file to view -- this last part has not changed.
3: There will be a log kept of all recent archives for up to seven days. Instead of archiving the site one at a time, you are now able to send multiple requests. Along with this comes the ability to see your requests in an archive log located under Org Admin > Archive Site.
