Archiving cards...then what?

When we send an animal to foster we will then archive the cards so they're no longer on our board. (which we learned from a google search) How do we permanently delete them? Or is archiving them, in a sense, "deleting" them? What if we want to put them back? Can we un archive something??

Hi @Emily Liske

To delete a card, you must first archive it. This will allow you to access it in the future. When you delete a card without archiving it, the action is permanent and cannot be recovered.

To retrieve an archived card, on the board menu, choose "More", then choose "Archived Items", find the archived cards and click "Send to Board".

I hope it helps you.


Hey @Emily Liske 

As @Paloma Fondon Araujo said you can delete after archiving, but you can also use the Card Delete Power-Up to delete cards without needing to archive them first (it adds a "Delete Card" button to your cards.

Also this is currently a "Bonus Power-Up" so will not count towards your board Power-Up limits :)

Hope that helps,
