Can I move current archived cards into one new board instead of their original board?

I understand we can use butler for new actions. Is there a way to move the archived cards?

Hi @pprrddnn ,

You can do this but you have to unarchive the card first then move the card in a new board!



is it possible to not unarchive the card first? I have thousands of archived cards.

that's gonna be so long for a manual work

Hi @pprrddnn ,

You can't move anything to another board without unarchiving!

You can create a list then unarchive all the cards in that list and move the list to the new board!

I anticipated that you have lots of archived cards so I did a some research but have not test it.

Archived cards are closed cards. So you can collect and loop through board.closed_cards and then do a card.change_board to target board and list and presumably change status to open. Probably have to break to several runs to avoid rate limits.

Run a skeleton test and it works
Contact me if this is a business requirement.
