How do I delete a repeating list from years ago?


I have recently returned to Trello after a few years and I have some repeating cards and lists from that time that I can’t turn off. I have tried everything recommended in the community and help documents, but it either doesn’t work, or the option listed isn’t available to me. For example, my archived cards don’t go back far enough for me to find the original repeating card. I have tried moving everything to a new board and deleting the board. No matter what I try the cards pop up and recreate the list they were on, even though I’ve deleted that, too.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @Laura Ward 👋

Welcome to the Community! It sounds like you've previously set up automations or perhaps have a Power Up working in the background. Have you checked both of these whilst you've been working through all the help docs and recommendations?

Hopefully we can get this solved for you 😃

All the best,
