Archiving Completed Cards: The Key to an Efficient and Organized GitScrum Board

GitScrum Board’s Performance with Archived Cards

In project management, it is essential to keep your workspace organized and streamlined. The GitScrum Board is no exception. With its ability to visualize the workflow and track progress, it is a powerful tool for managing projects. However, as tasks are completed and progress is made, the board can quickly become cluttered, making it difficult to focus on the work at hand.

This is where archiving completed cards comes in. Archiving is the process of moving completed tasks from the board to a separate, stored location, keeping the board clean and focused. By doing this, the board remains uncluttered, allowing you to focus on the tasks that are still in progress.

Additionally, archiving completed cards serves as a historical record of your work. It allows you to track the progress of your projects over time, and see how far you’ve come. This information can be invaluable when it comes to tracking your team’s performance and identifying areas for improvement.

So, how do you archive completed cards in GitScrum? The process is simple. Once a task has been completed, simply move the card to the “Done” column. From there, you can archive the card by clicking on the “Archive” button. The card will be stored in a separate location, where you can easily access it if needed.

How to Archive a Task

This possibility is useful when you want to close a Task, making it inactive or considering it out of the question for the moment for your project, but you don’t want to delete it:

  1. Open the Task, by clicking its name.
  2. Click the tool icon.
  3. Click “Archived”, and close the Task.

Accessing Archived Tasks on Your GitScrum Board

GitScrum provides you with the ability to archive completed tasks in order to keep your board clean and running smoothly. This is not only beneficial for maintaining the performance of your board but also for preserving historical records of your work.

To view your archived tasks, simply click on the “Archived” option and you will be taken to a board that displays all of the tasks that have been archived over time. This feature provides you with an easy and efficient way to manage your tasks, ensuring that they are well organized and easy to find when you need them.

How to Recover Archived Tasks on GitScrum Board
  1. On the Board header, click the “Archived” button, to visualize all archived tasks.

  3. Click the tool icon on the Task.
  4. Click “Archived” to disable this option, and close (x) the Task.

In conclusion, archiving completed cards is a crucial step in maintaining a clean and organized GitScrum Board. By keeping the board uncluttered and preserving historical records, you can enhance the performance of your team and improve the efficiency of your workflow.
