Archiving cards on a project (classic)

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

Note

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

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