Hello there! Today, I would like to share my personal journey and provide detailed instructions on how to close a Trello board. Trello is an excellent project management tool that I have been utilizing for some time, and understanding the correct way to close a board can be very beneficial.

Step 1: Open the Trello Board

To begin, go ahead and open the Trello board that you wish to close. This can be done by logging into your Trello account and selecting the specific board from your dashboard.

Step 2: Click on the “Show Menu” Button

Once you have the board open, you’ll notice a button labeled “Show Menu” on the right-hand side of the screen. Click on this button to reveal the Trello board menu.

Step 3: Select “More” from the Menu

Within the menu, you’ll see a section titled “MORE.” Click on it to expand a list of additional actions and options that you can perform on the board.

Step 4: Choose “Close Board” Option

After expanding the “MORE” section, you’ll find an option labeled “Close Board.” Click on this option to initiate the process of closing the Trello board.

Step 5: Confirm the Closure

Once you select the “Close Board” option, a confirmation message will appear asking if you are sure about closing the board. Take a moment to double-check that you have selected the correct board, as closing a board is irreversible. If you are sure, click on the “Close” button.

Step 6: Provide a Reason (Optional)

After confirming the closure, Trello will provide you with the option to provide a reason for closing the board. This step is optional but can be useful for future reference or when working with a team.

Step 7: Board Closed!

Once you’ve completed the previous steps, congratulations! You have successfully closed your Trello board. It will no longer be accessible or editable, but don’t worry, all of your board’s information will be safely stored in your account.


In conclusion, closing a Trello board is a simple and straightforward process. By following the steps mentioned above, you can ensure that your board is properly closed and no longer visible to yourself or other team members. Remember to double-check the board you want to close and consider providing a reason for closure if applicable. Now go ahead and tidy up your Trello workspace by closing any boards that are no longer needed. Happy organizing!
