Is it possible to change the slug of an archived goal without unarchiving it?

I have an archived goal which I’d like to revive. However, instead of simply unarchiving it, I’d prefer to rename it to something like “goal-old” and set up a new goal.

I can change the slug of an active goal, but is it possible to rename an archived goal?

OTOH, maybe I’m doing it wrong, and I should just unarchive the old goal, possibly using the “fresh start” feature? (Does it do anything besides changing the graph’s “min-x” to today?) Any suggestions?

If you know how to program you can do it via the API.

How cool is that! You’re right, it worked! (For the curious, here’s the relevant part of the api docs: https://www.beeminder.com/api#putgoal)

Thanks a lot!

This is no longer possible (changing goalnames (aka ‘slug’) via the api), but you can change the goalname and a few other settings on archived goals now, via the website.
