How To Archive One Of Your Spaces In ClickUp

Do you want to remove one of your spaces on ClickUp without deleting its contents? Or do you want to remove inactive spaces from your sidebar in the app? In any case, you can use the archive option to hide your spaces on ClickUp. Follow our guide below, and we’ll cover the steps to do so.


In ClickUp, you can create different spaces to separate your tasks and other contents. Those on the Free Forever workspace plan can create up to 5 spaces within their workspace, while those on a premium plan can create as much as they want.

If you no longer need a space on ClickUp, you have a couple of options to manage it. You can delete the space and move it to the trash, or you can archive it to hide the item from your sidebar.

When you archive a space, the app won’t remove the tasks and items within it. You can access archived spaces and tasks using the search option on the sidebar.

Here’s our guide about hiding a space on ClickUp.

How to hide a space from your ClickUp workspace

If you want to hide one of the spaces on your ClickUp workspace, you can use the archive option. This option hides the space from your sidebar while allowing you to access it through the search option.

You can archive spaces using ClickUp on your phone or desktop. Check our tutorials below, and we’ll cover the steps for both.

On your phone:

  1. Launch ClickUp on your device and sign in to your account.
  2. Tap the three lines on the top left side of the app to open the sidebar.

  3. Expand the Spaces section, tap one of the spaces, and select the arrow icon to open the space.

  4. Tap the three dots on the top right of the space to open the settings.

  5. Tap the Archive option on the Space Settings.

That’s how you archive a space from the ClickUp mobile app. Archive spaces disappear from the sidebar, but you can still find them using the search option on the app.

You’ll still receive notifications from items on an archived space. However, you can turn off notifications whenever you want.

On your computer:

  1. Launch the ClickUp desktop or web app and sign in to your account.
  2. Expand the Spaces section on your sidebar and click the three dots on the space that you want to manage.

  3. On the menu that appears, select the Archive option.

  4. Click Archive on the pop-up window to confirm your decision.

Please note that archived spaces still count as active spaces within your workspace. As such, archived spaces will still fill up the space limitations on the Free Forever workspace plan.

If you ever change your mind, you can find the space through the search bar and unarchive it to restore it back to the sidebar. However, please note that only admins and owners can restore an archived workspace.

To wrap things up

Now that you know how to archive a space on ClickUp, you can now hide the ones you don’t need any more from the sidebar. As such, you can organize your spaces and focus on the ones you actively use.
