How do I access the archive console (Archived Incidents component) so that I can search for, print, and save archived incidents?

The Archive Incidents console is a component that can be added within the navigation set items.

To access the Archive Console follow these steps:

1. If you have access to customize your navigation set, you can select the Incidents navigation button and click Customize List.  Under Available Items, expand Service and select Archived Incidents, click Add, and click OK. If you are using BUI this can be found under Components>Common.

Note: Only those who have the 'Customize Navigation' option enabled at the profile level will see the 'Customize List' option. If you do not, you may need to speak to your administrator to either enable that option in your profile or add the Archive Incidents component to your associated navigation set. For additional information on these options, refer to the following published answers:

2. Once the component has been added to your navigation pane, double-click Archived Incidents to open the archive console.
