How do I undo actions in Trello?

In both the web and Mac Trello apps, I cannot Undo my last action. For instance, I frequently archive cards on accident due to conflicting "C" shortcuts (in Trello it's archive, in email it's compose). When I hit Cmd+Z, I expect the card to reappear, but nothing happens.

 

There is an Undo menu option...does it not work? Does it work in some other way I'm not understanding?

 

Thanks in advance.

@Chris Hadley the easiest way to undo accidentally archiving something is to go to the board activity, click on the link to the card you just archived and send it back to the board.

You can find out more about the board menu here:

Thanks Iain for the response. That's what I've been doing...but I'm also curious why Cmd+Z doesn't work. Seems like that would be the easiest way to undo something.

Yeah I want an undo button and keyboard shortcut too. It would be much broader than just un-archiving cards.

You can undo certain select actions with plain Z.

I accidentally pasted and saved something on the wrong card and in effect deleted what was previously there. Because it was saved and the card closed pressing Cmd Z doesn't work. A human error shouldn't be permanent with todays tech. An undo feature is absolutely needed. I've lost some really important research.
