Currently, our marketing team has created a board to track all of our outstanding cards on different boards (website, advertising, etc). We manage this by creating a card on this "motherboard" every time we create a new card on a different board. We then attach the cards and link them, so it is easy for others to navigate between the "status" card on the motherboard and the card that we are logging the work on.
The issue we are running into is that this adds a lot of extra work by having to create two cards every time for one task. Also, when we move a card from one swim lane to another, the card on the motherboard doesn't move, so we need to go and move both cards instead of just being able to move the one card.
Is there a way a powerup like Butler could automate this in a fashion like this:
If anyone knows how to make this happen, it would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Jeremy, yes, this can be achieved with the Butler Power-Up.
You would have to set up two Rules.
The first command (to be set up on the board of origin) would look something like this:
This command creates a copy of the card, without any additional features. If you would want more, it's also easy to accomplish but you would have to work with a trigger, like adding a label or so to trigger the copying of the card.
You then would have to set up another command that observes the movement of cards.
Ideally, you want to cover two cases: when a card is moved on the board of origin and when it is moved on the Motherboard. In that case, you would have to set up the rule on both boards. Here's an example how the 2nd command could look like:
Does that help?
