Sometimes, you might find the need to archive tasks or sub-tasks to declutter your board. Don't worry, it's a straightforward process. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you through it:

Archiving a Task or Sub-Task
You can archive tasks or sub-tasks in two simple ways: through the Actions option or the Bulk update pop-up. Let's delve into both methods:

Method 1: Using the Actions Option
Hover over the 3-dot Actions menu next to your task title.
Select the 'Archive' option that appears.
