How can I pull up ALL archived cards? I want to see a full history, formatted into one document...

I'm conducting an analysis of major task & project completions, and need to draw upon my entire Trello board's Archived history. The only way I know is to slowly sift through the 'Archived Items' on the right-screen tab.

Is there a way to import a full spread containing the entire archive history?

@Collin Cowsill you can use the API to do this, here's an example of a Trellinator function that would move all archived cards to a list of the same name in a different board and unarchive them:

Thank you @Iain Dooley , I appreciate the help! (I'm novice in API interaction) Do I run this function on Google Scripts, or do I need access to a separate API platform?  And by "list of the same name", to which name are you referring? I understand that I need to create a "Reincardnate" board, yes?

@Collin Cowsill the Reincardnate board will be created if it doesn't already exist. And yes, you'd run the function in Google Apps Script, it will use the Trello REST API to do what you need. What I mean by "list of the same name" a list named the same as the list in which the archived card currently resides.

The article I linked you to has instructions for setting up and running Trellinator inside Google Apps Script. Let me know how you go!
