If I archive a card, I cannot see it again? How is the best way to move old cards out of the way?

I have some cards from a contact data base that are no longer in the prospect category, phone no longer works, and they have not answered.  Is the best solution to just archive, which says "delete on the Trello Board?

Hi @jcarter ,

If you archive a card, list, or board on Trello you can restore it back easily whenever you want! You can follow these articles/documentations

OK, thanks I will take a look.  Where could I have found that article?

This was helpful.  Thanks

One option I have used for some cases is to create an archive "board" and move the card (or even an entire list) to that board.  Can always visit the archive board and see everything there.  Sometimes that is not ideal and I have project boards where clients have access and want to see the full project history.  In those cases, I will create completion lists that have a time range (e.g. "completed 2021 - Q1").  Then when I am done with that completion list and move on to the next, I create the new completion list and "move" the old one to the far right on my board.  It's a less formal "archiving" that doesn't burry the cards somewhere the clients can't see them.  At some point I will eventually archive those lists (one some projects we create new lists to align with 2 - 3 week agile sprints).  When you archive the entire list instead of the individual cards, it easy to "unarchive" the list quickly.
