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

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