New to Your Partner Dashboard: Archiving Shopify Development Stores

Archive Shopify development storesAfter launching the new Shopify Partner Dashboard earlier this year, we’ve been busy working on shipping even more features — like our enhanced merchant handoff flow to help you and your teams work more efficiently with Shopify.

So far, we’ve gotten great feedback on how these updates have positively impacted the way you work with Shopify — but we’re not done yet. We know that you not only need a great development environment that enables your ability to work on client stores, but also one that’s simple, refreshing to use, and free of unnecessary elements distracting you from the job at hand.

We’ve gotten great feedback on how these updates have positively impacted the way you work with Shopify — but we’re not done yet.

How to archive your Shopify development stores

Gone are the days of having to sift through dummy development stores to find the ones you want to work on. This new feature introduces a streamlined process for archiving existing test shops, so you can leave your Development stores page for your current projects.

We’ve kept this process as simple as possible, meaning archiving an unwanted store is as easy as a few clicks. When you’re done with a test development store, all you need to do is:

  1. Head over to the Development stores page.
  2. Click on the development store you wish to archive.
  3. Select Archive development store under the development store name.
  4. That’s it — your development store is now archived.

Archive Shopify development stores: Demo

Once a development store is archived, it will no longer appear on your list, but that doesn’t mean it’s gone forever. If you need to unarchive a development store, you can do so by accessing your archived list in the footer of the Development stores page, and selecting See development stores you have archived.
