How to see archived lists?

I've used the archive tool without actually knowing how to access them again. I've been needing to access it now but I can't find it. My menu doesn't have the "see archived items" option, or whatever it was.


Please help!!

There isn't really a comfortable search function for archived cards in Trello.

If this is something you want to use regularly in the future, I recommend to think ahead and set up an Archive Board that stores your archived cards.

I have described a few approaches about accessing archived cards. Please read this article for more info.

You would have to use the Butler Power-Up in order to make it work. (Note that the article refers to the previous Butler tool, the ButlerBot. But you can make it work with the Power-Up as well.)

If you have any questions for a special setup, I am happy to help anytime.

@payton to get to the archived items, click the back arrow at the top of the menu screenshot you provided above, then click the "more" button and click "archived items".

You can search for archived cards by name there, and you can use "switch to lists" to view all archived lists.

You can also use Trello's search to find archived cards on the current board:

So for example:

board:"current board name" is:archived name:"this is the card title" edited:day

will give you all cards with that time that were edited in the last 24 hours, that are archived.

From the board click on Show Menu > More > Archived Items
