Is a default folder in every group and it is also a verb that describes a feature of the system. It is created by the system when the group is created. How the feature works is easier to understand with some background.

The fundamental concept of PageSeeder's XLink architecture is that documents, fragments, sections, comments, tasks are created, then edited by members. Both the current and historical information is linked together in one or more groups. By definition, all PageSeeder artifacts have dependencies.

PageSeeder places an archived document in the archive folder, then in a subfolder for the current year and month. A reference to an archived PageSeeder document appears like the following:
