With hundreds of requests and records being recorded almost on a daily basis, the performance of ServiceDesk Plus can easily degrade in the absence of proper housekeeping. Therefore, an archival plan is vital to keep the software performing at its best. The archived requests are stored separately from the active requests and have separate search and reporting options.

Navigate to Admin | Data Archiving from under the General block.
Check the Enable Scheduled Data Archiving checkbox.
