The question with agile boards is what to do with the cards when you are done with them. You probably don’t want to delete them, as you may need details associated with a card for future reference. You don’t want to leave them on your current board, this will just clutter up the screen.
Uzility has the option to archive cards. An archived card goes away from backlog planning, and all boards in the system. It almost appears as though it has been deleted, however you can get it back from them Archived cards page.
Lets take a look.
Lets assume you have completed and wish to archive card #1047 as shown here in the complete column. You simply right click on the card and select “Archive Card”.
At this point the archived card (#1047) will disappear and you might think the card has been deleted.
If you want to go find that card, just click the reports icon (“the clock in the top bar”), then click on the “Archived Stories” link in the navigation bar. You will the see that card #1047 is in the list along with several other cards that have been previously deleted. The column headers all have search fields so that you can easily find cards that were archived even if they were archived months ago.
Now that you find the Archived card, what can you do with it. You can right click on any archived card, from the right click menu you have a choice to Edit or Un-Archive.
The archiving option allows you to keep your backlog and boards clean and uncluttered.
