Archiving and Deleting Cards

Roles: Authors, Admins


Sometimes information is no longer applicable or needed in Guru. Archiving a card will remove it from regular search, but it retains the ability to be restored. Permanently deleting a card will remove it from Guru completely.

How to Archive a Card

  1. Open the card you wish to archive. Cards that are redundant should be archived so that there is no confusion over what content your team should be using!
  2. Click the ellipsis on the left side of the card.
  3. Select 'Archive' and click to confirm the action. Once a Card is archived it no longer appears in search results and if it is included in Context or Pins it will display archived at the top. Screen Shot 2016-09-28 at 8.59.02 PM.png

How to Unarchive a Card

  1. Go to the Guru web app (app.getguru.com) and select 'Card Manager' from the left navigation bar.
