How to View and Restore Archived Tasks

Locate and View Archived Tasks

When you archive a task, it is automatically removed from the project board. You can use the Search Function to view or restore previously archived tasks. To do this:

  1. Click the magnifying glass in the top-right of the screen, or use the shortcut ++K to access the search function. You can do this while you’re in a project as well as from the dashboard.View_and_Restore_Archived_Tasks_3_2x.png
  2. In the search dialog, click Scope and select Archived Tasks from the drop-down menu.View_and_Restore_Archived_Tasks_1_2x.png
  3. (Optional) apply additional filter criteria to narrow down the selection of tasks or use the search field to find a task with a specific keyword in its title or content.

To view the details of an archived task, simply click on the search result.

Restore an Archived Task

To restore a previously archived task:

  1. Click on the ellipsis in the top-right corner of the archived task’s dialog.
  2. From the drop-down menu, select Restore.View_and_Restore_Archived_Tasks_2_2x.png

The task then automatically re-appears in the project it was located before it archived.
