Returning cards to original status?


I have a recurring project with dozens of lists. At the end of the project, I would like to return the cards back to their original name and location. Is there a non-manual way to do this? 

I see there is a way to find out the original name but not return them back to original state. Any help would be appreciated!

In order to ‘preserve’ the card, you can either repeat the card, made it a template and a copy from it, ...etc. A card once changed it is not easy to have the change reversed out. Trello do keep a history of the actions but you have to know how to get to it and identify the change.

Below is an example of a ‘hack’ to recover a deleted card

may I know why it is important to have this? You can easily save the name and listname in some custom fields.
