Basics - Archiving vs. not

http://help.trello.com/article/786-archiving-lists-deleting-lists

 

I would have expected the Archived items to show up on a Board called "Archive" and everything be in there.

Deleting items is onerous.  Getting to Archived items is not intuitive.

I will just create my own Archive and just MOVE cards and lists there instead of Archiving-proper.

How is Closing a board different or same from Archiving it?

Devon_Henderson Community Leader Oct 18, 2017

Hello Rachel -

Closing a board is essentially archiving the entire thing at once. It has the same option as archived cards - the ability to open it back up, as well as search by its status as closed/open.

Hope this helps!

Hi Rachel!

Archiving is essentially a way to delete without the decision being permanent. You can also exclude or include Archived items in your search, which is nice feature. I agree that it can be confusing, though, since it's not a common feature in project applications!

I actually do similar to what you said - I have a Completed board that I send items I've finished. I actually keep a "Completed - October" type of list on my task board and use Butler to send it to the Completed board at the end of every month (as well as create the list for the new month). I'm happy to walk you through the process if you'd like to set up something similar!

Hope this helps.
