How To Articles

Modifying archived tasks on Wrike may seem challenging initially, but with some practice, it becomes effortless! In this guide, I will walk you through the steps of changing archived tasks on Wrike, offering my own tips and suggestions along the journey.

Understanding Archiving in Wrike

Archiving is a useful feature in Wrike that allows you to hide completed or no longer relevant tasks or projects from your active workspace. This helps keep your workspace organized and clutter-free.

When you archive a task or project in Wrike, it is no longer visible in your active workspace, but it is not deleted. This means that you can still access and make changes to archived work if needed.

Locating Archived Work

To begin, log in to your Wrike account and navigate to the left-hand sidebar. Look for the “Archive” section and click on it. Here, you will find a list of all your archived tasks and projects.

Once you’ve located the archived work you want to change, click on it to open it in the task or project view.

Modifying Archived Tasks

Now that you have your archived task or project open, you can start making changes.

If you need to edit the task’s details, such as its title, description, due date, or assignees, simply click on the corresponding field and make your changes. Remember to save your changes after editing.

If you want to move the archived task or project to a different folder or project, click on the “Move” button and select the desired destination from the dropdown menu. Again, don’t forget to save your changes.

Additionally, if you want to add comments or attachments to the archived work, you can do so by clicking on the respective buttons and following the prompts.

Restoring Archived Work

If you want to bring the archived task or project back to your active workspace, you can easily restore it. Simply click on the “Restore” button, and the archived work will be immediately visible in its original location.

It’s worth mentioning that when you restore an archived task or project, it will retain all the changes you made while it was archived. This ensures that you don’t lose any modifications you or your team made during the archiving period.


Changing archived work on Wrike is a simple and effective way to keep your workspace organized and focused on active tasks. Whether you need to edit task details, move an archived task to a different project, or restore it to your active workspace, Wrike provides you with the tools to easily manage your archived work. With this guide, you are now equipped with the knowledge to navigate Wrike’s archiving feature confidently.
