It would be nice to be able to restore Archived Sales Orders and Archived Sales Quotes into new documents. Presently, they can only be restored if the original Quote or Order still exists. However, as we know, quotes are converted to orders regularly, and upon posting, the Sales Order ceases to exist, and lives on as a Posted Sales Invoice.

Of course, the Copy Document action would work if pointed at the Posted Sales Invoice to resurrect the Quote or Order, however, there are business cases where the Posted Sales Invoice that resulted from a Quote does not look like the Quote that it originated from. Consider a customer who orders a custom item, but cannot have their invoice appear like a bill of material: they want a single-line invoice, perhaps.

If the Quote and Order archive could restore to a new document, this would really help out.
