Preserving Project History through Archiving Tasks

The Benefits of Archiving Completed Tasks on the GitScrum Board

Managing tasks in a project can be a complex and demanding task, and it’s essential to keep everything organized to ensure efficient workflow and timely completion. Deleting tasks may seem like a straightforward solution to getting rid of tasks that are no longer relevant, but it’s not always the best option. In GitScrum, instead of deleting tasks, it’s better to archive them.

Archiving tasks in GitScrum allows you to keep a record of all the tasks that were completed or are no longer relevant to the project. By archiving a task, it will be removed from the board, but it won’t be lost entirely. You can access it at any time from the archived section. Archiving tasks helps you keep your board organized and clutter-free, which can boost productivity and enhance the overall performance of your project.

Another benefit of archiving tasks in GitScrum is that it provides a historical record of the project’s progress. By archiving completed tasks, you can see how far you’ve come, and you can use this information to make future improvements to your workflow.

How to Delete a Task
  1. Open your Task, by clicking its name.
  2. Click the gear icon (⚙️).
  3. Click “Delete”.
  4. Confirm: “Are you sure to delete this task?” with “Yes” if you are sure you want to.

Notice that this feature removes tasks permanently, with no recovery.

In conclusion, when it comes to tasks in GitScrum, it’s always better to archive them instead of deleting them. Archiving tasks will help keep your board organized, clutter-free, and provides a historical record of the project’s progress, which can be a valuable asset for future projects.
