The ability to archive Initiatives shouldn't be based on the timeframe value but status.
Timeframe can be leveraged by multiple resources, long in range, or not accurately updated.
The status reflects a "done" state and is a better indicator if something should be archived.

Thank you for your idea. Archiving is handled outside of status since it removes the records from all reporting. It is quite common that completed initiatives should still be shown in progress reports. If you have need to archive initiatives individually at certain times, one work around would be to add them to a timeframe that has already been archived.
Given this background and the option above, we are unlikely to implement this idea at this time. We hope you can understand.
