Global edit of Status = Archived is not available in leads

Today in my regular Maximizer database I imported a list of Undeliverable notes for a list of leads.  I had several dozen and I put 'undeliverable' in a note.  I also wanted to set the Status to Archived.  The problem is that I imported the list originally as Status = Working.  Then I realized it should be Archived.  I was not able to Globally edit Status = Archived.  The values for New, Working etc. were available but not Archived.  This should be available to edit many records.

In a subsequent test I tried to map Status = Archived into an existing lead.  I got the following error:

lead -> Updating the database failed.  The error returned from Maximizer.Web.Data is Nullable object must have a value.

This import was matching on Salutation (where I put a unique value) and updating status with replace.  The existing was Working and I was not able to import Archived. 

This means there is no method to archive records in bulk.

Hi Jon: I will add this request into the backlog for consideration. There are other suggestions related to archive leads. For example people want to have a system field to track the reason for archive. We may need to consider all the requests together.
