How To Articles

Hey there! Today I want to share with you a step-by-step guide on how to unarchive something on Trello. As a frequent user myself, I’ve found this feature to be incredibly useful, especially when I accidentally archive something important. So, let’s dive right in and learn how to unarchive in Trello!

Step 1: Accessing Your Archived Items

To begin, open your Trello account and navigate to the board where the item you want to unarchive is located. Once you’re on the board, you’ll notice a panel on the right-hand side of the screen. At the bottom of this panel, you’ll find the “Archived Items” section. Click on it to expand the list of archived cards.

Step 2: Identifying the Card to Unarchive

In the expanded “Archived Items” section, you should be able to see a list of all the cards you previously archived. Take a moment to browse through the cards and identify the one you want to unarchive. Once you’ve found it, click on the card to open it.

Step 3: Unarchiving the Card

With the archived card now open, you’ll notice a button in the top-right corner of the screen that says “Unarchive”. Click on this button to unarchive the card and bring it back to your board.

Step 4: Confirming the Unarchive

After clicking the “Unarchive” button, a confirmation message will appear at the top of the screen to let you know that the card has been successfully unarchived. You can close the confirmation message by clicking the “X” button.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully unarchived a card in Trello. Now you can access and work on it just like any other active card on your board.

Unarchiving cards in Trello is a great way to retrieve important information that you may have accidentally archived. It’s a feature that ensures you never lose track of your tasks and ideas. So next time you find yourself in a situation where you need to unarchive something in Trello, just follow these simple steps and you’ll be back on track in no time!
