I accidentally hit c with a card selected and archived the card. I tried to undo the archive but couldn't find the option. I tried moving the card back to the list but that didn't seem to work.

In the top right select Show menu

Show menu

Then click More


Then click Archived Items

Archived Items

You then click the Send to Board button on the item and it will be reinstated to your board.

You can also visit your profile and see the audit trail of what you've done to each card, which includes a link to the archived card. Then you can "move" the card back to the board.


Click < Show Sidebar then Menu then Archive to see your archived items. Once there you can add them back to your board.

There is an option in the card menu, counter-intuitively named "send to board" Screenshot

There is a discussion for android app: this option seems to be named something like "unarchive", which is inconsistent but easier to understand. Stay tuned for modifications.

  • I found no keyboard shortcut for that function. It's probably not frequent enough for them to care

  • If you can't find the card you have archived though (since when you archive it the card is no longer on the board) you can find it in your profile activity as per other answer. Aug 22, 2017 at 1:29

There appears to no longer be an Archived Items menu item on the board's menu. I was only able to find an archived card by searching for it.

Board Menu is missing Archived Items
