Deleting or archiving documents in InVision V7

Follow

This article provides answers for InVision V7. If you’re on V6 of InVision, read this article instead. Not sure which version you're using? Find out now.

The creator of an InVision V7 document (any prototype, spec, board, or freehand) can archive or delete it at any time. Because deletion is permanent and cannot be reversed, we recommend archiving any document that you may possibly need to restore later.

If you want to archive or delete a document that you didn’t create, you’ll need to ask the current owner to take care of it.

If you decide to delete a document, you cannot restore it later, and neither can InVision. The people the document was previously shared with will not be notified if it is deleted.

Archiving a document

Archiving documents is a feature available to InVision Pro and Enterprise customers in InVision V7.

To archive a V7 document:

  1. Open the Documents page (or the space that stores the document you want to archive).
  2. Hover over the document thumbnail to reveal and click the ••• (more) icon in the lower-right corner, and then click Archive.
  3. On the confirmation screen, click the Archive button.
