I have a basic list setup on my board: To do / Doing / Done.

I've accumulated a crapload of cards in my Done column (go me!). But I've gotten over myself and decided that Done should only contain stuff that I finished this week, making my weekly status report a cinch.

I see that I can archive an entire list, but is there a a way to archive all cards in a given list at once without archiving each one manually?

  • Cool. Thanks for the tip @Daniel.

By clicking the 3 dots at the top of the list you get a list of actions for the list where you can find Archive All Cards in This List... Maybe this option was not available by the time this question was asked, but today this is the way to do it.

Trello archive list


Maybe one interim option might be to name the Done list as Done week ending 04-11-2011.
Then archive the whole list and create a new list for the following week.

There does not currently exist a way to "bulk" archive a set of cards.

  • Will it be added to the dev board?
