Is there a way to export all archived cards without having to go through each card?

I am looking for a way to export data from archived cards to a spreadsheet.  If there a better way to get the data instead of doing it manually by going through each and every card?

I installed a similar extension.  Thanks, I'll check it  out.

Hi Tai,

one way to do this is to set up an "Archive Board", where archived cards from one or several boards are collected (I use the automation tool Butler for this), and then create a JSON-file from this board.

(I describe this approach in this article:

Importing JSON into a spreadsheet shouldn't be too difficult.

Yes, that makes lots of sense.  It would be easier to export the whole board.  I haven’t had a chance to read the article you sent, but I will.


I guess the next question would be is there a simple and fast or automated way to move the cards already archived to the archived board?

Hm, that's tricky ... before I continue thinking about it: do you already have an account with Butler? (Because if not, then we would have to stop here anyway as Butler currently doesn't allow new users on board)

@Tai Nguyen @Katrin Anger here's the Trellinator code to do it:

The search function will return 1000 cards, so as you append each row to the spreadsheet it moves the cards to an archive board, this means you can re-run the script over and over again until all cards have been moved off your board and into an archive board list.

You can see how to setup and run this code here:
