If you no longer wish to have a customer record showing on your GoCardless for Xero dashboard, you can archive the record so that it is not displayed in your customer list.
You may wish to archive a customer record for any of the following reasons:
- You no longer work with this customer and so will not be charging them again
- The record is a duplicate
- The record only has a cross in the left-hand column meaning it is simply a cancelled mandate
- You do not wish to ever collect payments from this customer via GoCardless
When you archive a customer, GoCardless for Xero will no longer automatically collect payments from that customer.
To archive a customer
First head to your customers list in GoCardless for Xero and then select the three dots in the actions column for the customer that you would like to archive, then click on archive.
To restore a customer
If you need to unarchive a customer for any reason, you can do so by viewing the archived customer list.
First head to your customers list in GoCardless for Xero and then select view archive in the top right.
Then click the three dots in the actions column for the customer you wish to unarchive and click restore.
