FMG Suite archives your website, creating a record of your site each time compliance approves a change. Our sites meet the 17a-4 standard with respect to archiving.
The first archive is created when your site goes live. Subsequently, an archive is created each time compliance approves a change to the website.
If you have self-managed compliance, you can access these archives at any time by navigating to the "Compliance" section on your website. Click the "View Archives" button to view your archives:
Here will see a list of your archives. Here is an overview of the Archive modal:
Download: Click "Download" to download an archive
Request Archive: Click the "Request Archive" button to request an updated website archive be emailed to you
Preview Location: If you would like to create an archive as a preview location archive, check the "Preview Location" box before hitting "Request Archive." Preview location archives are taken from the preview website location, not from the website's live location, which uses pre-approved content. These archives can be used to create a website archive prior to turning the live website on for the first time, for example
Users with direct compliance do not have access to their website archives - their compliance department, however, can access the archives at any time.
