Is there a way to delete everything in the Archived Items?

Thank you,

@Gary Liu you need to do this with the API. This Trellinator function will do it:

You can run the function in BenkoBot here:

You'll just need to change the name of the board from "My Board" to whatever your board is -- beware that if you have two boards with the same name it'll just grab the first one it finds.

The default limit on the search function is 1000 cards so if you have more than 1000 cards you can either pass in a new limit or just run it a few times.


Thanks for the response.


But how do I do that?

@Gary Liu go here:

Authenticate with your api key/token

Copy this code:

Paste it into the textarea on the above page

Replace "My Board" with the name of your actual board

Click "run code"

Hi @Gary Liu ,

Right now, it's not possible to bulk delete archived cards, so you'll need to do that one by one.

Here's an article that gives you more details about it.
