How To Find Archived Cards In Trello

Trello is an incredibly versatile tool when it comes to organizing and managing tasks. One of its useful features includes the ability to archive cards. This allows you to clear your board without deleting important information that you might need to refer back to someday. However, if you’ve never had to retrieve these archived cards, you might find it a little challenging. In this blog post, we’ll guide you on how to find archived cards in Trello.

Step 1: Go to the Trello Board

First things first, you need to navigate to the particular Trello board where you’ve archived the cards. You can do this by clicking on the board’s name that will appear in the ‘Your Boards’ section if you have starred it or in the ‘All Boards’ category.

Step 2: Open the Board Menu

Once you’re on the board, look for the ‘Show Menu’ button on the top right side of the screen. Click on it.

Step 3: Choose “More”

Inside the board menu, there is a ‘More’ option. Click on this to expand further options.

Step 4: Click on “Archived Items”

Under the ‘More’ options, you’ll see an option that says ‘Archived Items’. Click on it to view all the cards that you have archived.

Step 5: Search for your Card

Here, you can see all your archived items. You can search for the specific card you want by typing the card’s name into the search bar at the top of the list.

Step 6: Unarchive or Open the Card

Once you have found your card, you can click on it to open it. Here you can view the card’s details. If you want to move it back to your board, click on the ‘Send to Board’ button.

If you want to keep it in the archive but access it easily in the future, you can ‘Star’ it. This will keep it at the top of your archived items list.

And there you go! Now you know how to find archived cards in Trello. It can take a bit of navigating if you’re new to Trello. But once you get the hang of it, you’ll appreciate the archiving feature a lot more.

Remember, the purpose of the archive feature is to help you keep your board clean without permanently losing any tasks or information that might be useful later. Use it wisely, and Trello can become an even more effective tool for you or your team’s productivity.
