Multiple Archives

When you create an account, we automatically create a default Archive in your name but you have the ability to create as many Permanent Archives as you want and manage them all from one account. You can create a Permanent Archive for another person, one for your family to share, another for your organization or nonprofit and switch back and forth between them without needing to log out.

Add your family members, friends or teammates as Members of your Permanent Archives so that they can contribute. You choose a Member’s access level and you can add and change permissions at any time as well as easily transfer ownership.
