How to manage obsolete channels?

My team has many channels and many of them are quite old and no longer relevant/active.
How can I mark them as “inactive” so that they do not show up in the list of channels but I still can search and find them if I search by their name later?

Can I do this using a bot? I could program such that if the channel was created 1 month ago, I mark it as inactive?

Thanks @prateeksriv for the feedback.

We have an existing feature request that would allow you to “archive” channels, in addition to having an option to delete channels. https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/10960347-channel-archiving

Would you like to upvote the feature and perhaps participate in the discussion with other community members?
