It would be really useful if the Archive function would include sending an automatic update to all linked listings which would update them with 0 stock.
This could prevent sellers from overselling. Currently it's quite difficult to delete listings when we discontinue or temporarily archive a product., especially if the listings weren't created in Linnworks but linked through the channel mapping screen.
You could try to import first a file with '0' stock levels for the SKUs you are going to archive so that stock level is sent to the channel and listings are ended.
And finally archive those items.
