In this article, I will demonstrate how you can review your archive in Trello. As a Trello user, I personally appreciate the usefulness of the archive feature in maintaining an organized and clutter-free board. Let’s delve into the specifics and learn how you can view and handle your Trello archive.

Accessing the Archive

To access the archive on Trello, follow these steps:

  1. Open Trello in your web browser and log in to your account.
  2. On the left-hand side of the screen, you will see a list of your boards. Scroll down until you find the board that contains the cards you want to access.
  3. Click on the board’s name to open it.
  4. Once the board is open, you should see a sidebar on the right-hand side of the screen. Look for the “Menu” button (represented by three horizontal lines) and click on it.
  5. In the menu that appears, click on the “More” option.
  6. A dropdown menu will appear. Click on the “Archived Items” option.

After following these steps, you should now be able to see all the cards and lists that you have archived in Trello. This is where you can manage and review your archived items.

Managing Archived Items

Once you have accessed the archive, you can perform various actions on your archived items. Here are some helpful features and tips:

  • Restoring Cards: If you want to bring back a card from the archive, simply click on the card and click the “Send to Board” button. The card will be restored to its original location on the board.
  • Permanently Deleting Cards: If you want to delete a card permanently, hover over the card and click the three dots that appear in the corner. From the menu that appears, select “Delete.” Keep in mind that this action cannot be undone.
  • Searching for Archived Items: Trello allows you to search for specific archived cards or lists. Use the search bar at the top of the page and enter keywords related to the item you are looking for. Trello will show you the relevant archived items based on your search.

My Personal Experience with the Archive

I have found the archive feature in Trello to be incredibly helpful in keeping my boards organized and clutter-free. Whenever a card or list is no longer relevant to my current projects, I simply archive it. This allows me to focus on what’s important and prevents me from feeling overwhelmed by unnecessary information.

The ability to restore cards from the archive is especially useful. There have been several instances where I needed to revisit a task or reference some information from a previous project. With just a few clicks, I can easily find and restore the necessary card from the archive.


The archive feature in Trello is a powerful tool for keeping your boards organized and maintaining a clear workflow. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can access, manage, and restore your archived items with ease. Give it a try and experience the benefits of a clutter-free Trello board!
