Archiving cards on a project (classic)

You can archive classic project cards to declutter your workflow without losing the historical context of a project.


  • Projects, the all-new projects experience, is now available. For more information about Projects, see "About Projects" and for information about migrating your classic project, see "Migrating from Projects (classic)."
  • You can only create a new classic project board for an organization, user, or repository that already has at least one classic project board. If you're unable to create a classic project board, create a project board instead.

Automation in your classic project does not apply to archived classic project cards. For example, if you close an issue in a classic project's archive, the archived card does not automatically move to the "Done" column. When you restore a card from the classic project archive, the card will return to the column where it was archived.
