Is there a "do not archive" flag for cards?

Robin Moore June 12, 2023

I'm using the Dashcards power up and all my lists have Dashcard header card showing the list's card count. I tried adding a Butler rule to archive all cards older than sixty days and it archived the Dashcards too, which is not what I want!

How can I prevent certain cards from being archived? Ideally there should be a "Do Not Archive" flag, but is there a hack/workaround, like a Butler action to reset the "last active" date to today?

Check out this guide by @Brittany Joiner for pinning cards to top of the list

You can use the same 📌Pinned label to solve your problem.
Keep the automation you have for archiving and then add the rule:

when a card with the 📌Pinned label is archived, unarchive the card

Thanks, I actually came up with the same hack solution myself but it doesn't work: the card is unarchived but the Dashcard power up inside is dead and Reactivate doesn't fix it. I had to delete and recreate the card.

The Calendar rule archive cards action needs more filter options
